Nearly $1.4 Million In Funding Approved For Church In Africa, Including Pastoral Care For Migrants And Youth Summer Vocations Camp – August 9, 2017

WASHINGTON—The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Subcommittee on the Church in Africa approved 54 grants totaling nearly $1.4 million in funding to support dioceses and pastoral projects across the African continent.

“Our brothers and sisters on the African continent often face challenges different from what we know in the United States, but we are united by the same faith,” said Cardinal Joseph Tobin, CSsR, of Newark, chairman of the Subcommittee on the Church in Africa. “The generosity of Catholics in the United States to the Solidarity Fund for the Church in Africa has supported these communities as they grow and strengthen their faith in the wake of wars, migration, and disease.”
