I have been invited personally to attend gatherings of bishops, episcopal conference meetings, religious congregation chapters and the like. On behalf of CNEWA, I’ve been privileged to extend a hand of support, offering them our insights and our counsel. They have always been grateful for this, as it brings before them the bigger picture of the universal church. They realize they are not alone.

We accompany them.

When we are invited to give our counsel — to share our experience or even to offer constructive criticism — CNEWA steps up and offers responses with a sense of fraternity and solidarity. We do not “impose” our thinking on any church, diocese, institution, project or individual. We offer advice, answer questions, make suggestions and join our prayers with theirs as they journey forward.

We accompany them.

Diocesan officials value greatly the counsel of our regional offices and actively seek our participation in developing new programs of religious education or evangelization; seminary pastoral outreach programs; and community faith development programs in cities, towns and rural villages. Besides the financial support, CNEWA often encourages the local church to reach out further in her ministry and service.

We are there to assist in whatever way we can.

We don’t impose; we accompany them. And you join us as we accompany them.

Your financial support to CNEWA translates to so many forms of accompaniment in our outreach in the Middle East, Northeast Africa, India and Eastern Europe. Besides our financial distributions, which are critically important, our prayers and our moral support make a real difference in the faith life of those whom we are privileged to serve.

Please continue your own personal “accompaniment” by remembering those in need in your prayers. God bless you.
