Collection for the Church in Central and Eastern Europe

On Ash Wednesday, a special collection is held for the Church in Central and Eastern Europe. Your gifts to this collection make a difference for those living in more than 25 countries, many of which were under former Communist rule.

Your gifts will help to train seminarians and lay leaders, will support social service programs, youth ministry, pastoral and catechetical centers, and schools, will build and renovate churches, and will assist the evangelization work of Catholic media.

You can read here how the collection is making a difference to people in Georgia or view the video below. There are approximately 80,000 Catholics in Georgia practicing the Latin, Georgian-Byzantine, and Armenian rites. They kept their faith through Communist rule, even when some were not allowed to enter churches and priests were killed.
