Rome, May 10, 2019 (PR Newswire) EWTN Global Catholic Network announced that it will launch a news service for the African continent. ACI-Africa will be a Nairobi, Kenya-based Catholic news agency, which will publish content in English, French and Portuguese.
“I am pleased to announce that EWTN will soon be launching a news agency which will cover the Church across the continent of Africa,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. “The Church in Africa is vibrant and continues to see exponential growth. My hope is that this new service from EWTN will help continue to build up the African Church and also ensure that the voice of the African Church is heard more clearly around the world with content that is shared through EWTN”s other news platforms.”
Warsaw formally introduced the project during an event at EWTN’s Vatican bureau. The news agency will officially begin operations on August 15, the Solemnity of the Assumption, the same date on which EWTN Founder Mother Angelica launched EWTN in 1981.
