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.
Fr. Michael Kelly SJ

St Peterâs School in Thonburi put on an acrobatic performance from China attended by around 3,000 people. Others who did not attend also donated to the fund.
The schoolâs project to provide scholarships for poor Catholic students began with 10 students this year.
âProviding the opportunity for Catholic children to study in Catholic schools strengthens the foundation of the Catholic Church here. We see that many Church leaders today and those who support Church activities have gone through Catholic schools,â added Father Witchukorn.
