“We always give too little if we give only material things.” Pope Benedict XVI

Aid to the Church in Need is a pontifical charity. The Holy Father’s wish is for us a “command,” a call to action, as the founder of Aid to the Church in Need Father Werenfried put it in his testament. We are grateful for these “commands,” for they show us where God is waiting for us to dry His tears. More than a matter of material goods or money, it is a matter of saving human souls. That is why we must take Christ to others. This is the pastoral foundation of our work. We, all of us together, fulfill this task. Thank you.

Together we are keeping the Faith alive when we help seminarians to understand their vocations more deeply, when we provide religious sisters with the means they need for catechesis or for their work with young people, and when we help parishes to build churches  where they can live from the Eucharist and adore God in the Blessed Sacrament.

Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament is the treasure of the Church. It gives strength and consolation, and renews us in hope and confidence for the tasks ahead.
Aid to the Church in Need, an International Catholic charity, is comprised of 17 independent offices around the world. Though independent, all of our offices work in a collaborative manner.

The  international office is located in Germany, and acts as our central source for information and project management for grants. 

In this way, our mission to help build up the faith where it is so desperately needed, is operated more efficiently and funds distributed without unnecessary delay.
