CV launches in flooded Paris
The River Seine had burst its banks when CV coordinator Kathleen Griffin last weekend led the 18-strong French CV group for its media training. The group, known as CathoVoice, is the 21st group to form since Catholic Voices started in the UK in 2010.
Among the topics treated in as-live TV and radio interviews were paedophilia and the differences Pope Francis has made since he became Pope.
Two of the leaders of CathoVoice, Amicie Pelissie du Rausas and Franziska Harter have already appeared on French television in live interviews.
The training coincided with the publication of Austen Ivereigh’s book in French, ‘Comment répondre aux questions brulantes sur l’église sans refroidir l’ambiance.’
Several print and radio journalists also attended the training, interviewing both the trainees and coordinators and showing interest in the future development of CathoVoice.
