Planting Seeds of Hope

In Ukraine’s rugged corner of the world, hope is taking root.

Decades ago, the Soviet Union all but banished public worship, and faithful Christians in Ukraine were driven underground. CNEWA has long accompanied the Greek Catholic churches in and of Ukraine, even during the bleakest of times. Now the members of the underground churches have climbed, blinking, into the sun. And CNEWA has extended a hand.

We have helped the faithful emerge from the catacombs, supporting the formation of clergy, religious and lay leaders and educational programs, such as Ukrainian Catholic University — all toward building a stable and prosperous future for the common good of all Ukrainians.

CNEWA also works closely with Caritas Ukraine, helping the local churches to respond to the needs of the displaced, the vulnerable and the marginalized by supporting rehabilitation programs and social services for the elderly and the infirm and those with special needs.

It is the dawn of a new age in Ukraine. And you can be a part of it.

Join CNEWA as we live the Gospel in Ukraine, planting seeds of hope and giving those who kept the faith alive the tools to help it grow.
