COVID-19: The Church Still Needs You

An Urgent Request for Prayers from INDIA

Sister Christin, a Sister of the Holy Cross congregation is an important project partner of ACN’s, and has been for many years. She coordinates the Small Christians Communities (SCC) programs that ACN support on different ways. She has sent us a plea for prayers for India. She says: “We, in India need your prayer. Dear friends in ACN, May I humbly request for your prayers. That the Lord may help us to find ways and strength to protect ourselves and our people. You have always stood by us in our pain and sufferings. Let us be united in prayer. Thank you. God Bless you friends.” Thank you ACN Community for your prayers and for passing this urgent plea along. Let us create together a great wave of prayers for India.

The Needs are Greater than Ever Before

Responding to COVID-19 

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.”
