Support an Apostolate Serving Youth in Pakistan

In Pakistan, Christians and other minority groups find it nearly impossible to advance economically, mostly having to work as street sweepers, day laborers, or domestic employees. They are seen as second-class citizens, and a Christian name can block someone’s access to higher education. In classrooms, Christianity is unfavorably portrayed, and young Christian students are often excluded or bullied.

Conditions are even worse for Christian girls, who face gender discrimination and the threats of abduction, forced marriage, and conversion.

The Church in Pakistan encourages Christian youth to take pride in their faith and give confident, capable answers when confronted with prejudice. Many Catholic children attend Church-run Sunday school, but teenagers also need guidance and support in living the faith. So, in November of 2019, the Catholic Church announced that 2020 would be a “Year of Youth” and planned a range of initiatives.

Now, the Diocese of Faisalabad’s Youth Commission is seeking aid for its youth apostolate program. Its aim is to strengthen young people in their faith and help them find their rightful place in society. ACN is supporting this initiative with a contribution of $7,900.
