Evolving or growing Catholic communities in poor areas need help to construct, expand, and renovate critical facilities. These requests come from parishes who, sometimes despite years of fundraising, are unable to fund the projects on their own.
The projects we support have urgent facility needs, a sound funding strategy and business plan, and strong local support.
Since 1905, Catholic Extension has extended 12,000 grants for construction and repair of churches and church facilities. Explore the stories on this page to learn more.
