Vatican Cardinal Shares Pope’s Blessing for Ukraine Aid
Your support will empower ministry partners like Cardinal Krajewski and the Dicastery for the Service of Charity who provides relief — including generators, clothing and food — to families in Ukraine and refugees who have fled the country.
Pope Francis has imparted a special Apostolic Blessing for Cross Catholic Outreach and its supporters in recognition of the ministry’s support of Ukraine’s children and families. In a letter from the Vatican, Cardinal Krajewski wrote:
“I carry with this venerable gift the thanks of Pope Francis himself for this concrete support of his pastoral initiative, and [the Holy Father] imparts to your ministry a special Apostolic Blessing for grace and divine consolation that from his heart he imparts to you and all the staff of Cross Catholic Outreach.”
Your support will extend the Holy Father’s blessing as we work together to lift up families around the world.
When a massive earthquake rocked Haiti in August 2021, more than 100,000 homes, schools, health care facilities and churches were damaged or destroyed. With the backing of caring supporters, we responded quickly with a three-stage relief plan.
Supporters like you are playing a critical role in ending the water crisis afflicting poor, rural communities across southern Africa. In 2022, we built 65 life-sustaining wells to supply safe water: four in Ghana, six in Malawi and 55 in Zambia!
Use it for reflections and notes to grow in your spiritual life. You’ll also receive a prayer request form to mail back so that we can pray for your needs. In effect, this creates a spiritual bridge to connect you to our sisters and brothers in Christ in the developing world!
Cross Mission Partners also receive a semiannual Mission Update with news, insights and information about the good work and accomplishments made possible by your support.
Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2023, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
