The Bishop of South Sudan’s Catholic Diocese of Tombura-Yambio has lauded the Comboni Missionaries in the country for founding the largest media entity in the East-Central African nation, the Catholic Radio Network (CRN).
Speaking during the opening of a joint managerial meeting between Catholic Radio Network (CRN) Board of Governors and the Directors of the nine radio stations that constitute CRN, Bishop Edward Eduardo Hiiboro extended his gratitude to the Missionaries for creating a platform that he said was transforming the lives of the people of God in South Sudan.
Bishop Hiiboro who is the Chairman of CRN Board of Directors further thanked those he said are behind the running of the Catholic radio stations spread across the seven Dioceses of South Sudan and Sudan’s Diocese of El Obeid.
“I want to thank all the Bishops of the individual Dioceses and in particular the directors for our radios, on behalf of the Bishops,” the South Sudanese Bishop said, and added, “CRN is still voice of peace, of justice, of unity, of courage, of hope in the houses of all the people of South Sudan and this is what we consider important for our unity.”
