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.

Maryknoll Sisters mark centenary
- Anthony Law, Hong Kong
- Hong Kong
- October 29, 2012
The special event also saw the official opening of the Maryknoll Convent Schoolâ€™s new Heritage Centre. The center will house relics of the school and the convent.
Founded in the United States in 1912, the first group of six Maryknoll Sisters arrived in Hong Kong in 1921 as part of the congregationâ€™s first mission overseas.
Besides school and parish work, the sisters in the China region today serve domestic helpers and the deaf in Hong Kong and Macau.
