Support the Church in
Central and Eastern Europe
Our shared faith is deeply present in the cultures of Central and Eastern Europe, but this faith was severely tested over the
course of the previous century. Countries in this region were under communist rule for 40 to over 70 years. During this time,
bishops, priests, and church leaders were arrested and martyred. Churches were confiscated, communities broken, and
people were forced to practice the faith in secret. Despite this religious persecution, the faithful of Central and Eastern Europe today are rebuilding and renewing what was lost—and you can help.
