Asia

The Asian continent, imbued with rich philosophical and religious traditions, remains a great frontier for your testimony to Christ…Let Christ turn your natural optimism into Christian hope, your energy into moral virtue, your good will into genuine self-sacrificing love!  This is the path you are called to take.”  Pope Francis

The number of Catholics in Asia is projected to top 170 million by 2020.  In 2015, Aid to the Church in Need supported the Church in Asia greatly, which included the formation of more than 1400 seminarians. Our help is still desperately needed as Christians continue to be terrorized and harassed in China, Vietnam, Pakistan, India, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Thank you for your continued help.
