CWN Editor's Note: “We urgently need to build churches or rent premises as places of worship for the pastoral care of migrants, but we have no money,” said Archbishop Sebastianos Rossolatos. “When we ask for help, we are often told that only social projects can receive funding, that no funding can be granted to the pastoral care and the construction of churches, and that they cannot help us because we are a EU country.”
