The Catholic Communication Campaign (CCC) is an opportunity to help people across the United States and around the world connect with Christ. For example, the island of Samar in the Philippines is home to nearly two million people, about 90% of whom are Catholic. Many live in remote villages outside the reach of television and the Internet. Instead, radio is a critical source of information. The Catholic Church has provided the people of Samar with spiritual programming through a dedicated radio station for 20 years.
But in 2013, Typhoon Haiyan hit the island. It destroyed the entire radio station. The community has been unable to fund a new station, leaving hundreds of thousands without access to spiritual messages.
Your support for the Catholic Communication Campaign is now helping the local diocese to rebuild the station. Because of you, people can once again hear radio programs that deepen their faith. You have given our brothers and sisters access to spiritual resources that they have lived too long without.
