“The building of this church has been extremely important to us. We have no words to thank you for the fact that our dream has now come true.” A devoted faithful and parishioner from Brazil
Through the generosity of our donors, Aid to the Church in Need commits itself to the construction of churches and chapels, and the repair of church buildings desecrated by war or hatred — giving believers new hope and a place to gather as a faith community. Thank you for your continued support.
This parish is planning to build a new and much larger church that would also be more suited in size to the present number of the Catholic faithful. Will you give to support the construction of a new mission church in this very poor part of India?
The Catholic faithful are poor, and they have made big sacrifices to be able to purchase a plot of land on which to build a church, even if they still have nowhere near enough to pay for its construction. Will you give so that these poor faithful in Haiti can have their own parish church?
For the 20 elderly and infirm Sisters living in the Jeita convent Jeita today, there is no heating and in winter it can get extremely cold. This is not only hard to endure for these already frail Sisters but also scarcely inviting for any guests who may wish to stay. The congregation has therefore decided to install a central heating system, but the cost is too high for them alone and so they have turned to ACN for help.
Father Paul Gomes of the cathedral Parish of the Good Shepherd, to which Kolimnagar belongs, has turned to ACN with a request for help. The new church will be used not only for Holy Mass and other liturgical celebrations, but also for catechetical and other pastoral programs and gatherings aimed at helping the people to deepen their faith and live a truly Christian life.
