ACN Success Story
In this month of February, our Projects of the Week will be dedicated to India.
An immense and fascinating country, the Indian sub-continent is home to over 16 million Catholics. The great majority is poor and does not have the funds to support the development of their parishes. Aid to the Church in Need is there to respond to the needs of bishops, community superiors and others who are tasked with Church responsibilities who ask us to help them to strengthen the faith of Indian Catholics. Here are some stories of projects – successful ones – which have seen the light of day thanks to you!
On a recent trip to India, the Aid to the Church in Need team was met with songs and dancing in the diocese of Sambalpur. The benefactors of the organization are helping them build a church for the parish of Meghpal. The majority of the inhabitants in this sector are displaced people from Jharkhand (displaced because of the industrialization and arrival of multi-nationals) and are first generation Christians.
