And the need is greater than it has ever been

Message from our Director



The Church still needs you!

Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) has committed to giving 7.5 million dollars for the support of priests and religious who are supporting vulnerable communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To help mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), the international pontifical charity serving the persecuted and suffering Church around the world, is providing 7.5 million in emergency funding to priests and religious caring for the most vulnerable communities around the world.

“As a rising tide of human suffering related to COVID-19 makes itself felt around the world, the demand for social and spiritual care is soaring,” said Thomas Heine-Geldern, ACN’s Executive President. “It is our wish that this aid, made possible thanks to our benefactors, will help ease the burden on our courageous religious, who stand on the front lines, bringing God’s love and compassion to our suffering brothers and sisters.  Now more than ever, the Light and Hope of the Lord is needed.”
