Catholic charities like ACN support the poor and persecuted Church with prayer, pastoral relief and material assistance. Help is given to refugees of all denominations.

Today this charity raises around $US 70 million dollars annually, which it distributes to the Church in need in 144 different countries around the world. Aid to the Church in Need has more than 600,000 benefactors around the world and they are kept informed about our work through our Mirror Newsletter and associated Catholic news.

The money we distribute comes entirely from private donations. We receive no public or official Church monies whatsoever.
