THEIR FAITH IS OUR HOPE

RADICAL PREACHERS SPONSORED FROM ABROAD ARE
TEACHING AN EXTREME FORM OF ISLAM WHICH IS LEADING
TO INTOLERANCE, PERSECUTION AND TERROR

THE RELIGIOUS IN AFRICA ARE ALSO SHEPHERDS OF
THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH. OUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON THEIR FORMATION.

THANKS TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH THE LOVE OF CHRIST
CAN BE EXPERIENCED BY MILLIONS OF AFRICANS EVEN
IN THE REMOTEST AND MOST MISERABLE AREAS

FATHER AURELIO GAZZERA OCD, MISSIONARY IN THE 
CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC

"As priest and missionary, what can I do in this situation? What can the Church do? We can do so much, really so much! It is more necessary than ever to rebuild the hearts and the conscience of the people."

BISHOP OLIVER DASHE
DOEME OF MAIDUGURI, NORTHEASTERN NIGERIA

“ACN has kept us alive and hopeful, we continue to remain grateful to all our benefactors. Rest assured of our prayers.”

WILL YOU HELP PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS IN AFRICA?

In certain parts of Africa, there is a growing presence of a form of Islam that is becoming more and more aggresive. Strengthen the Catholic Church to spread Jesus' message of love and peace, and give support to the victims of terror.

SUPPORT VOCATIONS TO LET THE FAITH GROW

The future of the Church in Africa depends on the formation of its future priests and sisters. Help us support this growing Church which is rich in vocations but poor in resources.

RELIGIOUS IN AFRICA ARE THE HEROES OF THE FAITH

Missionaries are God's answer to the poverty and frustrations of African people: while sharing their hardships they bring hope and faith to their people. They often are the only source of health care and education.
