Radio Veritas is asking for your support for the Telethon which will take place live on Radio Veritas on Wednesday June 7th throughout the day - from early morning (6am) to late in the evening (9pm).
Listeners will be encouraged to phone in and challenge family, colleagues, friends, business associates and competitors or organizations similar that to which they belong, to equal or better contributions being pledged..
Friends of Radio Veritas are encouraged to prepare for this day by informing their fellow parishioners or fellow members of their organizations of this telethon.
Our target is R 500,000 which we believe is achievable through the goodwill and generosity and participation of all.
Organizations in particular could prepare themselves by discussing what might be significant contributions or challenges.
Radio Veritas has given birth to a new and inspiring programme featuring the team of Renew Africa. Several dioceses and parishes are running this programme and now people around the country can tune into a weekly programme at 8 o’clock on a Monday evening to hear Duncan Hyam and his very competent team. Truly, there is never a dull moment.
The programmes unpack the contents of all the Seasons of Renew Africa. At present the programmes are dealing with Christian prayer. After three months they will move on to dealing with the various segments of what are known as Seasons 1, 2 and 3 - Meeting Christ Today, Healing the Body of Christ and We are the Church.
These programmes are helpful to those who are going to begin the programme in their parishes as well as to those who have already embarked upon the journey. Radio Veritas has now made it possible for parishes throughout our country to draw on the professional expertise of the Renew team in Johannesburg.
For those who are unable to tune in on a Monday evening, the programmes are available as podcasts on www.radioveritas.co.za
While philosophers and the wise may have particular ideas about our existence in time and location, the reality of the matter is that each of us are active participants in shaping our world – for better or for worse.
Radio Veritas and the Radio Veritas Warriors choose the “for better” path because, among many other things, we have hope. We invite you to join us in this endeavour to form a collective of Catholic professionals who believe that by harnessing our cumulative energies we could have a positive impact on our Church and society.
It is not a new insight – we just believe the time is now to get the idea off the ground in South Africa.
At this point we would not like to prescribe the shape or form of this proposed forum. We would like to keep it simple and focussed, unencumbered by bureaucracy and clear in its mission. Our starting point is that this body be, or will be:
That said, we invite you to not only ponder our outreach, but also to engage with us… and others. Invite them too and join us for a drink or two at our first event to get the ball rolling - The Wine & Whiskey tasting on Thursday, 8th June.
