“We don’t help people because they’re Christian. We help because we are.”
As an agency of the Holy See, CNEWA provides funds to ensure the Eastern churches — and its devoted sisters, priests and lay leaders who run the clinics, schools and other social service sanctuaries — have enough money to do their vital work. As a Catholic sister we work with explains, “we don’t help people because they’re Christian. We help because we are.”
By doing so, we help them assist and protect families, the elderly and the disabled. We support the vocations of future sisters and priests. We fund formation programs that strengthen Christian communities. And we’ve been doing it all since 1926.
