8/5/2020 Bishops, priests, brothers and religious sisters from developing countries and places where the Church cannot support herself, have written to ACN with messages of sincere gratitude and thanks for all who were able to give (and are continuing to give) towards their subsistence aid. In the regions where the Church struggles to support herself, the small donations given by local communities (often living in poverty themselves) to the Sunday collection, or to the poor boxes, are simply not coming in as they used to. This leaves the priests and religious communities wondering how they will survive. In order to ease this burden of anxiety we are asking those who are able, to consider making a small but recurring gift at this unprecedented time.” Offerings can be made online: www.aidtochurch.org/covid-19 or by calling 1800 101 201.
