Keep the Faith Campaign
Thank you to all who contributed to the Keep the Faith Campaign of the USCCA that concluded July 10.
We came within a hair’s breadth of matching the $30,000 challenge grant that long-time friends of the China Association had put up – just $120 shy.* As a result, when combined with our existing resources, we now are assured of the funding to cover our part-time staff and colleagues.
Beyond the funding, we were buoyed up by the many people who participated and the comments we received:
“I joined the Board in the days when China and the U.S. were first feeling their way forward. Your mission now is as important than ever.”
“Fr. Michael – Please continue your work so that more Catholics in the U.S. will learn about the witness of their brothers and sisters in China.”
"I send this donation in memory of Sr. Janet Carroll, MM, who was among the founders of the USCCA, and whose labors for the Church in China provide an enduring witness to the Church’s commitment to dialogue, patience and great love for the Chinese people.”
Thank you for your support of our mission,
Fr. Michael Agliardo, SJ
*Even now, one of our friends has agreed to match any last-minute contribution so that the campaign can hit its $60,000 goal.
