USCCB awards $1M to Church in Africa
January 14, 2016
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Subcommittee on the Church in Africa has awarded $1 million in grants to 42 pastoral projects in 18 nations.
“The growth of the Church in Africa is a gift to the Church as a whole, and it is through the work of the subcommittee that we will continue elevate the spiritual well-being of our brothers and sisters on the African continent,” said Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, 85, who chairs the subcommittee.
The grants are funded by a special collection that is taken up in American dioceses. In June 2015, the subcommittee awarded $1.2 million to 47 projects.
