The papal charity Aid to the Church in Need is seeking the establishment of “ACN Ministry” in dioceses across the country.
In a letter to the bishops, ACN Philippines said localizing the ministry would further efforts and programs for suffering Christians around the world.
“This will mean establishing ACN in your particular church as the ‘ACN Ministry’,” said Msgr. Pedro Gerardo Santos, ACN Philippines board trustee.
ACN was founded in 1947 as a Catholic aid organization for war refugees and was recognized as a papal foundation in 2011.
In 2011, ACN’s national section in the Philippines was established and has since been supporting the global organization through prayers, projects and advocacies.
“From then on, we have been providing practical and spiritual support for persecuted and suffering Christians around the world,” Santos added.
Among the ACN’s campaigns include the observance of “Red Wednesday” every November and the “One Million Children Praying the Rosary” every October.
