Episcopal Digital Network launches new service in French: Actualités

Posted Jun 22, 2016

[Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] Episcopal Digital Network has launched Actualités, designed to provide news and information for French-speaking readers.

Actualités, which means “news” in French, was designed to provide services for French-speaking Episcopalians and Anglicans throughout The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. Actualités is available here.

“The Episcopal Church includes several dioceses where English is not the primary language, so it’s vital that we offer news and resources so that all Episcopalians may benefit from them,” said Matthew Davies, an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. “We have been providing news in Spanish for several years, both as a resource to the Province IX Spanish-speaking dioceses and for the thriving Latino communities in the U.S. With the launch of Actualités, we are delighted to expand our service to Episcopalians in places such as Haiti, the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe and the approximately 4 million French-speaking Anglicans around the world.”

Actualités features news articles by Episcopal News Service as well as press releases from the Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs and links to useful resources, such as the monthly radio program, Le Magazine Anglican. Already featured on Actualités is Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s World Refugee Day statement.

Actualités joins the Spanish news area Noticias, available here.

The Episcopal Digital Network is an ad-supported media network that delivers news, information and resources to church leaders, members and general audiences through the Episcopal News Service, Sermons That Work and Lesson Plans That Work websites.

    I am delighted by this development. Some years ago Anitepam, the Anglican African theological education network, hosted a consultation of French-speaking Anglican theological educators and church leaders in Limuru, Kenya (1996). Fr. Jacques Bossiere, who led the consultation, established Rencontres, and they and we at Anitepam sought more translation of key Anglican resources into French. Cost was always a problem, and overall I am afraid not much was accomplished on this front. This step regarding Anglican news in French is right on the mark.
