CNEWA supports Christians in India through churches that have nourished the region’s flock for millennia. In particular, the agency works closely with the Syro-Malabar and Syro-Malankara churches — two Eastern Catholic communities that trace their roots to St. Thomas.
For decades, CNEWA has helped India’s priests, sisters and lay leaders shelter, feed, clothe and teach children; prepared priests and educated sisters; and built and furnished hospitals and clinics.
CNEWA today supports a variety of institutions and programs, including St. Anthony’s Dayssadan, a home for children with physical disabilities run by the Preshitharam Sisters; the St. Joseph Pontifical Seminary of the Syro-Malabar Church, the oldest seminary in India, where hundreds of young men are preparing for the priesthood; and the Grace Home, which cares for H.I.V.-positive children and adults.
