Walk with us for Lent


If you could travel back in time nearly 2,000 years, you’d find early Christians giving up something for Lent.

For centuries, it entailed all-day fasting and fervent prayer. But for many busy Catholics, Lent now means giving up a favorite food — or lighting a church candle on the way home from work.

At CNEWA, Lent inspires us to do much more. It’s a time for reflecting on how Jesus suffered, but also on how he cared for children and elders, the poor and the ill.

By funding clinics, schools, orphanages and other facilities run by local churches and religious sisters, CNEWA helps families in places filled with poverty or violence. In the Middle East, Northeast Africa, India and Eastern Europe, we ensure they receive the care they need.

In memory of our Lord’s sacrifice on Good Friday, can you help them with a donation? Make Lent a season for lightening their burden and restoring their spirit.

Thank you for sending healing and hope their way.
