Dear friends in the Lord,

It’s my great joy to present this special glimpse into the work of CNEWA: our consolidated 2012-2013 Annual Report.

As I have traveled to the places we serve — the Middle East, Northeast Africa, India, Eastern Europe and beyond — I’ve often thought how much I wish I could share what I see, hear and touch with our extended CNEWA family. There are no words to capture fully the smile of a grateful child in Bethlehem or the compassionate caress of a sister in India as she tends to the sick, the elderly or the outcast. But the videos here, I hope, will give you a small sense of the great work you are making possible.

This Annual Report is one more way to connect you to our brothers and sisters in need, reminding us of our shared mission: to build up the church, affirm human dignity, alleviate poverty, encourage dialogue — and inspire hope!

Thank you being a part of that mission!


Msgr. John E. Kozar
President
