UCAN needs your support
You are why we do what we do - report, describe, comment, review. It is to bring to your eyes just what life is like for believers across Asia that we publish UCAN.
But as you know, the effort needs to be sustained if it is to have continuing effect.
UCAN publishes some 150 stories a week in four languages across six websites. We are grateful to benefactors in Europe and the US who support us. But those countries and the Church there are under increasing financial strain and their generosity no longer covers our costs.
We need financial help from our readers to sustain our efforts. Our reporters, editors, video producers and photographers all have families and we need to support them. They do excellent jobs, but they can't do their jobs for nothing.
Will you help us to sustain UCAN? Please click here to help.
Thanks in anticipation.

Cardinal Jean Baptiste Pham Minh Man of Ho Chi Minh City, Auxiliary Bishop Peter Nguyen Van Kham and other priests welcomed 300 catechumens at the Notre Dame Cathedral on April 2. Hundreds of their relatives, godparents and catechists were also present at the gathering.
In his homily, Bishop Kham urged the catechumens, who are expected to be baptized and receive Confirmation on Holy Saturday, the Easter Vigil, to ‚Äúcontinue discovering Jesus who is the Way, Truth and Life in their daily lives.‚ÄĚ
They should also ‚Äúlead others to Jesus and embrace Catholicism,‚ÄĚ he added.
