Christians in many countries suffer persecution and oppression for their faith. Please show your prayerful solidarity by praying for the persecuted Church, at home or in your parish. You can request prayer cards or join us in prayer at midday each day.
Offer a Mass for the suffering Church
Your Mass offering will help to support a poor priest, who will offer Mass for your intentions. Find out more about Mass offerings
