A car for religious sisters in Lviv

The sisters of the religious community the Catechists of Saint Anne are devoted above all to working with children and teens. They provide them with religious education and support them as they grow in faith and as individuals. The sisters also work as catechists in various parishes and schools, organising activities for youth and Christian summer camps.

There are four sisters living in their convent on Horodotska Street in Lviv. In addition to their catechetical work in the parishes, they also visit the families, especially the poorer ones, bringing them food and clothing. Since the beginning of the war, however, they are even busier, as they are also helping to look after the large number of refugees who have fled the areas of conflict and made their way to Western Ukraine.

The sisters urgently need a vehicle for their work and to transport their aid parcels, but they cannot afford to purchase one themselves. Sister Veronica Yaniv reached out to us and wrote: “The vehicle will greatly help us in our missionary work, and we would be most grateful for your support.”

We want to answer the call and enable these sisters to continue their important missionary and humanitarian work, which is why we have promised a sum of $22,500. Thank you for helping us to help them!
