Please support the persecuted Church and her faithful
“Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”
In the 1930s, a dozen girls from Ukraine began preparations for the country’s first-ever Redemptorist convent, but its opening was delayed indefinitely by the outbreak of World War II and Soviet persecution.
Their dream was finally realized in 2016, when three Redemptorist sisters successfully founded a Ukraine convent.
The sisters currently work in a family home, which can only accommodate eight people. Another sister will join them soon, and young women in the area have expressed interest in entering the convent. However, given the size of the space, they must wait to admit candidates.
The sisters are grateful for their work and foundation in Ukraine, where the local faithful seek their counsel and pray with them often. But despite the sisters’ frugality, it is not easy for them to make ends meet, especially as prices sharply rise.
We have promised them $2,300 for their apostolate and personal needs.
Will you help Ukraine’s sisters expand their reach? We are sure they will remember you in their prayers.

“This brief note is to let you know that we, the monks in Sri Lanka, are praying for the whole world every day from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm before the Blessed Sacrament. And as we pray for the whole world, we have not forgotten you at ACN; you and your loved ones are also remembered in a special way. We pray that the Good Lord may protect you, your loved ones from this pandemic as we believe in a God who is good.”
