Smiling Carmelite Sisters in Ozernoye, Kazakhstan. Aid to the Church in Need helps contemplative communities, as well as many other Sisters, priests and seminarians.

From priests to catechists and seminarians to Sisters, you enable us to help persecuted and suffering Christians in around 130 countries to live out their faith.

By helping these key Church leaders, you are actually reaching out to many more of our brothers and sisters – millions in fact, as the projects that we support have the specific aim of providing pastoral and spiritual support to Christians in parishes and communities all over the world.

Often they witness to Christ in the face of persecution, oppression or poverty. In their hour of need it is the hope of Christ that sustains them – as well as your prayers and solidarity.
