The Catholic charity organization, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) International, has announced a number of projects in Catholic Dioceses around the world that have received a boost, including those in Africa, that are under the patronage of St. Joseph.
This, according to the leadership of the Pontifical charity, is aimed at supporting the initiative of Pope Francis who proclaimed 2021 the Year of St. Joseph, calling upon Catholics across the globe to celebrate a man who played “an incomparable role in the history of salvation.”
In a report shared with ACI Africa Wednesday, February 17, ACN notes that the aid targets institutions dedicated to St. Joseph across various continents.
“In honor of the Year of St. Joseph, the international Catholic pastoral charity ACN International is highlighting the many projects it supports in Latin America, Africa, the Near East, Eastern Europe and Asia which have been dedicated to St. Joseph,” the leadership of the charity says.
In Africa, in the Indian Ocean Island of Madagascar, ACN is helping to build the Parish house of St. Joseph in Betatao, which “will serve as a home to the Priests of the vast Parish with its many outposts.”
