Support the Solidarity Fund for the Church in Africa in August
Strengthening family life. Supporting vocations to priesthood and consecrated religious life. Training pastoral leaders to share the Gospel with young people, the sick, prisoners, and people affected by the violence of war.
Pastoral ministries such as these are among the many ways that the Church grows and proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ in countries throughout Africa. Although the Church in Africa is rich in faith and joy, it lacks the resources it needs to support parishioners and communities.
In response to these challenges, the bishops of the United States established the Solidarity Fund for the Church in Africa as a way for United States Catholics to “Stand with Africa” by supporting evangelization, seminary education, and formation of the next generation of church leaders in countries from Angola to Zimbabwe.
This August, many dioceses across the United States are supporting the Solidarity Fund for the Church in Africa through a special collection. Please prayerfully consider participating by making a gift to the Solidarity Fund at Mass or through your parish e-offertory program.
#iGiveCatholicTogether also accepts donations for the Solidarity Fund. To learn more, visit www.usccb.org/Africa for information and resources and share them with your family and friends.
