IRONDALE, Alabama, APRIL 4, 2011 (Zenit.org).- The Eternal Word Television Network is expanding its programming to three hours on Faith Satellite Radio in Africa.

EWTN announced its expansion April 1. 

SIGNIS, the World Catholic Association for Communication, is making possible the FSR programming. SIGNIS launched a project last year to bring satellite radio to 31 African countries. 

“We are pleased to be added to Faith Satellite’s service and know our African audience is grateful for this new way to listen to EWTN,” said EWTN President Michael Warsaw. 

Additionally, FSR is promoting an “Adopt a Parish in Africa” campaign. This initiative allows parishes outside of Africa to make a small monthly donation to their adopted parish. With this donation, FSR is able to provide adopted parishes with a satellite radio so parishioners can hear Catholic programming around the clock.
