Transport for priests and Sisters
Helping to bring spiritual aid to needy Christians
Many of the priests and Sisters Aid to the Church in Need helps serve Christian communities scattered over hundreds of miles.
These servants of God are willing to undertake exhausting and sometimes perilous journeys across difficult terrain to bring the sacraments, pastoral teaching, schooling and health care to the faithful. Without these visits God’s Word would rarely reach many cut-off Catholics.
That is why Aid to the Church in Need provides essential and effective transport including four-wheel-drive vehicles, cars, motorbikes, bicycles, outboard motors for boats and even donkeys – whatever is most appropriate to the terrain.
A car to suit the terrain
A car is the answer to their prayers
Now able to reach the faithful
A moped is just what is needed for this remote region
Mobile at last in the service of God
A boat is the only option in some parts of the world
Seminarians welcome the Seminary's new car
Offering thanks and prayers for the gift of a new car
How can I help priests and Sisters reach out to their communities?
Make a donation to Aid to the Church in Need’s transport projects
Helping a priest or Sister reach their far-flung Christian communities can cost as little as £60 for a bicycle.
Help raise funds to provide transport around the world
Would your parish or local school like to help provide a motorbike or car for a priest or Sister? For as little as £900 you can provide a motorbike – or a donkey! – while £2,000 will buy an outboard motor for a boat. If your fundraising plans are very ambitious, you might even like to fund a car for £6,000.
If you are taking part in a challenge event like a marathon or triathlon, why not raise money for our transport projects? Each step you take will help a priest or Sister on their journey to reach needy Christians.
