World Cup 2018 ACN
The World Cup is beginning! And all eyes are on Russia. The next few weeks will be of intense interest for players and football fans alike. And so we, in the Pontifical Foundation ACN, have decided to create our own team. They are men and women who represent many other ‘players’ from the 140 countries where ACN supports their pastoral projects – professionals who have dedicated their lives, away from the spotlight or the applause of the crowds, and strive with all their hearts to gain the decisive victory. A victory that consists in bringing happiness to those entrusted to their care.
