The Patronato de Acción Social (PAS) and the solidarity projects we support
The priests and their tireless work also need volunteers to collaborate in multiple tasks. Here are some details.
Work of the priests
The mission of the priest is centered on the whole of humanity becoming Eucharist, thanksgiving and praise, worship of God and charity towards the neighbor, but beyond their spiritual work, they are a source of human, cultural and social development wherever they perform their pastoral work.
In this space, CARF gives visibility to the foundation's volunteer work and to the solidarity projects that promote priests all over the world. The stories of his life can be followed through the web section of the pastoral tours.
What is the Patronato de Acción Social?
The Patronato de Acción Social (PAS) aims to complement the activity of the CARF Foundation, in service to the Church and priests, through various volunteer projects, and it does so:
- Provision of vestments and liturgical objects to newly ordained priests and churches with scarce resources.
- Medical and health assistance for priests or seminarians displaced from their countries of origin, and care and assistance for elderly priests who lack companionship.
- Material support for various tasks in parishes in needy countries, enabling priests to dedicate their time fully to their pastoral mission.
- Contribution to the installation and maintenance of temples, outbuildings or parish medical dispensaries in distressed areas.
- Support for worship in parishes in very needy areas.
- Provision of books of doctrinal content for libraries and development cooperation actions.
solidarity project of the month
New parish for Homa Bay, Kenya
Uganda Martyrs Achego Catholic Church is the parish of Kagan, a deep rural area located in Homa Bay Diocese, Homa Bay County, Kenya. The parish was established two years ago and everything has to be raised from scratch. The project proposes to build a church, a parish house and a wayside shrine of Mary. In addition to the spiritual benefits for its 3,080 parishioners, it will have a decisive social impact on the wider community of Kagan. The main anticipated social impacts are in health, education and employment.See project

What projects do we support?
We support by giving visibility to projects located around the world that have a proven social impact. We act as a bridge between the projects carried out in the parishes or dioceses of priests who return to their country after training in Rome or Pamplona.
The projects must have a proven social impact, and can be related to soup kitchens, dispensaries, hospitals, parochial schools, seminaries, etc.
