How We Help

Our Programs Thanks to the commitment of generous faithful, we reach out to our suffering brothers and sisters through these eight core programs. Our donors have made a positive difference in the lives of literally millions of people worldwide. Please consider making a gift to support a program, or offer general support. The need is great. You may also wish to view specific Projects in Need that are in urgent need of funding.

FORMATION: Support of the formation of priests and nuns, providing basic necessities such as food, clothing, and religious materials for poor seminarians and vocations so that they may walk their path to God, and we may rebuild the Church, one vocation at a time.
 
AID TO REFUGEES: Assist refugees and persecuted faithful, providing material help and pastoral care to victims of civil war and religious persecution. From assisting orphans in Sudan, to helping Christians under siege in Iraq, we help keep Christianity alive in today's troubled world.
 
SPIRITUAL LITERATURE: Place Bibles and religious materials into the hands of those in need of spiritual nourishment. Our Child's Bible has been translated into 141 languages; Pope Benedict XVI accepted the 10 millionth copy during his 2008 Papal visit to Brazil.
 
CARE FOR RELIGIOUS: Assist contemplative sisters and elderly religious, offering pastoral care and love to those who have devoted their lives to serving God. In return, these religious gladly keep their benefactors in their hearts and prayers.
 
TRANSPORTATION: Offer transport to pastoral workers, providing transportation — bicycles, cars, motorcycles, trucks and even mules — to help desperately poor priest and nuns around the world reach remote parishes and minister to the needs of their parishioners.
 
MASS OFFERINGS: This program offers Masses in honor or memory of loved ones, and at the same time helps sustain poor priests around the world. In existence for more than 60 years, this program helps provide basic living needs to impoverished priests so that they may dedicate themselves fully to serving God.
 
CONSTRUCTION OF CHURCHES: Rebuild churches and chapels, repairing buildings desacrated by war or hatred, and supporting new construction, giving believers new hope and a place to gather as a faith community.
 
MEDIA OUTREACH: Promote the Word of God through Christian media, developing and supporting Catholic broadcasting programs for radio and television that reach faithful across the world.
 
"Only my readiness to encounter my neighbor and to show him love makes me sensitive to God as well. Only if I serve my neighbor can my eyes be opened to what God does for me and how much he loves me."
— His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, Encyclical Letter Deus Caritas Est
