Albania: Help a Church in a Permanent State of Mission

Project Leader:

Pope Francis

In Southern Albania, amidst a backdrop of religious plurality and historical complexities, the Catholic community thrives under the diligent stewardship of 83 missionaries, including priests, religious and lay families.

Despite the small number of Catholics- 4,000 and counting-, concentrated in a predominantly Muslim and Orthodox region, their faith is burgeoning.

Bishop Giovani Peragine, a Barnabite missionary who served as Apostolic Administrator of Southern Albania until May describes the situation as a "missionary emergency," a critical period of spiritual reawakening. "From the liveliness of the spirit among our people, it is clear that Southern Albania is experiencing a true missionary emergency. Our small Christian communities, though few, are intensely connected to the Catholic Church. They gather regularly for the Word and the Eucharist whenever possible, drawing strength from each other and their newfound faith," he explains.

Your support can help address this emergency by providing resources for building chapels, supporting catechetical training, and maintaining the missionary presence that is so vital for continuing this transformation. Each donation is a step towards nurturing a resilient Catholic community in a region that has faced great trials but is now experiencing a bloom of faith, watered by the grace of God and the legacy of martyrs.

"Every prayer, every donation, and every shared story helps bridge the gap between a challenging past and a hopeful future," Bishop Peragine adds. Join us in supporting these brave souls in Southern Albania, where every contribution makes a profound impact on this vital mission field.

Support the revival of faith where it is most needed. Join us in this crucial mission to plant seeds of hope and nurture the growing Catholic community in Southern Albania!
