CWN Editor's Note: A subcommittee of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops has granted funds to 241 projects in 22 formerly Communist nations. Bishop Jeffrey Monforton of Steubenville, the subcommittee’s chairman, said that “we are humbled and inspired by the witness and resolve of the faithful of Central and Eastern Europe who, after decades of oppression, are rebuilding their ancient Church while confronting modern challenges.” The grants are funded by a collection that is taken up in many dioceses on Ash Wednesday.
