Pope Francis established an emergency fund to help communities in the Catholic Church’s mission territories affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Pope has given an initial contribution of $750,000 and asked Church organisations to contribute to the fund, which will be managed by the pontifical mission societies, according to a statement published April 6 by Fides, the news agency of the Congregation for the Evangelisation of Peoples.

“In her task of evangelisation, the church is often on the front lines of major threats to human well-being,” said Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, prefect of the congregation. “The Holy Father is calling upon the church’s entire vast network to face the challenges ahead.”

Praise the Lord
