Around the world, millions of people are in material and spiritual need. God’s mercy embraces each one of us responding to our most profound yearnings.

Mercy is also a concrete action. ACN, through concrete works of mercy, strives to serve our brothers and sisters all around the world by supporting more than 6,000 projects a year.

IRAQ: SAINT JOSEPH’S – THE CLINIC WITH OPEN DOORS

Everywhere in the world, from cathedrals to chapels from monasteries to clinics, schools and refugee camps, these are some of many places where God reveals His mercy, especially for those most in need.

ECUADOR: A WAY OF RECONCILIATION IN THE AMAZON

Thousands of priests, religious sisters and brothers, catechists and lay people all around the world are channels through which God reaches His children in need. ACN helps them to continue their missionary work.

LEBANON: THE TABLE OF ST. JOHN THE MERCIFUL

When men and women invite God to work through them, the fruit of their labor truly transforms the world. ACN supports thousands of projects every year to help the suffering and persecuted Church, for “the essence of our work consists in drying the tears of God wherever He weeps”, as Fr. Werenfried van Straaten, our founder, said.

“I invite you, together with ACN, to carry out works of mercy in every part of the world.”
