Parishes across the world are in need of assistance, that is why we encourage all Catholics to frequently donate to their local parishes. Most parishes survive because of the generosity of their donors. Unfortunately, not all parishes have the resources to continue serving their communities unless we provide assistance to them. For example, in 2019, a terrorist attack destroyed a parish in Sri Lanka and we immediately fundraised, and through the generosity of our donors, we were able to deliver emergency relief to the parish destroyed by the terrorist attack. More than 300 Catholics died and many children were left without parents. Through the generosity of our donors, we were able to provide assistance to children left as orphans.
