Foreign Missions Projects

“I hope that all communities will devote the necessary effort to advancing along the path of a pastoral and missionary conversion which cannot leave things as they presently are. ‘Mere administration’ can no longer be enough. Throughout the world, let us be ‘permanently in a state of mission’.”

Message from Pope Francis
September 17, 2022

Father Antony has returned to us after spending
16 months in India.

The elementary school in his village of Tamilnadu is literally falling apart. Monsoon rains have left the building in a state of collapse.

It is safer for the children to attend school outside than risk danger inside the building.

We have been raising money to repair this school and ask for your support in this project so that the children may have a safe school to attend.

Since the passing of 16-month-old Baby Iscah last February, our rosary ministry in her name has really grown in Pakistan!

The cost of shipping rosaries is expensive, and we are always looking for funds to offset the cost.

In addition, Iscah’s parents are expecting a child in May. This is joyous news! We continue to assist by helping to pay medical bills and provide basic needs including housing.

We established the Little Hearts of Faith school for children in Chichawatni, Pakistan where Christians are being persecuted daily.

Twenty-four children attend the school and are always in need of supplies, food, clothing, etc.

Through generous contributions, we were able to build a one room school, so the children no longer have to attend class on the rooftop.

Since shipping costs are prohibitive, the best way to help is with monetary donations. We distribute the funds, when available, for the specific needs of the children.

Worldwide Rosary Ministry

Since the inception of our rosary ministry, we have distributed to Pakistan, Nigeria and India. We have sent over 76,000 rosaries in two years!
(Many thanks to Our Lady of Grace Rosary Makers!) Shipping costs are always a challenge. Even small donations, when combined, are a tremendous help in covering those costs.

International Seminarians

We are currently assisting seminarian Alvin Antony who is attending seminary in India. He is in his 5th year of seminary with 3 more years to go.
