SheilaPiresRadio Veritas Staff Member Invited To Symposium In Rome

We’re very proud to announce that Radio Veritas production assistant and presenter Sheila Pires has been invited to the 2018 Catholic Women Speak (CWS) Symposium and book launch in Rome. She leaves for Rome on Saturday, September 29th.

The aim of the symposium is to bring the voices and experiences of young women from the global Catholic Church (Latin America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America) to the Synod on Young People, The Faith, and Vocational Discernment through the launch of their new book entitled ‘Visions and Vocations’ edited by Professor Tina Beattie.

It all started back in 2014, when Sheila proposed a current affairs programme that would look at the work of the Catholic Church throughout Africa and also gender inequality, including a weekly women’s feature on Thursdays. Thus ‘Catholic View’ was born and it broadcasts every Tuesday to Friday at 18h30 on Radio Veritas South Africa.

In 2015 Ms Pires came across an article about ‘CWS’ which mentioned the well-known theologian, and St Augustine’s College lecturer, Dr Nontando Hadebe. One interview with Dr Hadebe led to a series of interviews for the Women’s feature on ‘Catholic View’. In 2018 member and book contributor of CWS Dr Radebe made the exciting and unexpected announcement – that Ms Pires had been selected to attend the 2018 CWS Symposium and book launch in Rome on October 1st. Later, the founder of CWS Professor Tina Beattie invited Sheila to introduce and chair a roundtable discussion entitled ‘Sharing our Stories: Cultures and Catholicism’, also making her a member of CWS. The conference which starts on September 30th to 05th October, comprises of a number of activities, including a session of filmed interviews with some of the participants conducted by Tina Beattie and Sheila Pires on October 02nd, and attending Pope Francis’ general audience on Wednesday 03rd October. CWS member and Radio Veritas presenter Dr Nontando Hadebe will also take part in a roundtable discussion entitled "Reflections in a Time of Crisis - power, abuse and sexuality, followed by a performance: "The Three-Legged Cooking Pot - Culture, Catholicism and Women's Rights".

According to Dr Radebe, among the reasons Sheila was selected was her critical approach in raising contemporary and controversial issues related to Women, Youth and African Politics in her programmes on Radio Veritas South Africa.

Sheila says she is thrilled at being given this wonderful opportunity and also sees it as a chance to market Radio Veritas to a wider audience. While she’s extremely grateful to both Catholic Women Speak and Dr Nontando Hadebe, above all she’s grateful to God.

Whilst in Rome Sheila will be covering the first week of the Bishop’s Synod on Young People and providing daily reports on Radio Veritas breakfast programme “Matins” presented by Khanya Litabe and Colin York.

Have a wonderful time Sheila – we’re proud of you!!
