Thanks in large degree to the heroic efforts of Saint John Paul II, the Berlin Wall came down and Communism no longer rules Eastern Europe. Yet, even today many Churches in the former Soviet territory need our vital pastoral and humanitarian support.
This ongoing need is mostly in Ukraine (home today to almost 5 million Ukrainian Greek-Catholics), where the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church was outlawed and virtually eradicated by Communist authorities, along with the Catholic Churches of Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria and the former Yugoslavia.
Thank you for your support in helping this region keep the faith alive.
Father Nikica Bosnjakovic has a lot to do. He is the parish priest of Sid, in Serbia, a country where Catholics make up only 5.5% of the total population, while 85% of the 7.2 million inhabitants of the country belong to the Orthodox Church.
