For millions of Christians living in some of the most inaccessible parts of the world, the Word of God reaches them over the airwaves, on television, in print and on the Internet far more easily than a priest or Sister can visit. Supporting media projects to spread the Word of God is a key priority for Aid to the Church in Need – at the specific request of Pope (now Emeritus) Benedict XVI, who said: “The Church urgently needs people through whom God can be made increasingly present in the media, so that his message of salvation can reach the ends of the earth.”

Whether it is supporting radio stations in Sudan, Asia or Ukraine, helping fund TV stations in Russia or the Middle East, supporting online news agencies like Zenit, a leading provider of Catholic news in English and Arabic, or even making television series about the persecuted Church in partnership with the Catholic Radio and Television Network, we are – thanks to you – taking up the challenge of spreading God’s message to even the most remote corners of the world.
