Walk with us for Lent


During the days ahead, you and I will join Pope Francis on a solemn journey. Like millions of other Catholics during Lent, we won’t need to travel far at all.

Even if we only join him in our hearts, we’ll walk along the side aisles of our parish church. We’ll pause at each of the fourteen images of our Lord’s last hours on earth.

We’ll remember what sacrifice truly means.

At CNEWA, we’ve spent more than 90 years walking with the needy on another difficult journey.

Thousands who live in the Middle East have seen war destroy their peaceful homes. Many more — in Northeast Africa, India and Eastern Europe — endure grinding poverty that can’t be fully described with words alone.

That’s why CNEWA has been helping people in despair by funding hospitals, schools, orphanages and pastoral care.

It’s why — during this season of sacrifice — I hope you’ll donate if you can. For every child, parent and grandparent we assist, thousands more need your compassion.

There’s no better time to help than now.

Thank you for giving and God bless you,

Msgr. John E. Kozar
Catholic Near East Welfare Association
