Can You Help?

How you can support Catholics in the military.

Can You Help?: How you can support Catholics in the military.

Bishop Joseph Estabrook often cited the staggering statistics facing the Archdiocese for the Military Services USA: 265 active-duty priests serving 1.8 million people spread throughout the world.

On every military base and ship, in every veterans’ hospital and theater of war, there are service men and women longing to meet the Lord. Clearly, the chaplains can’t meet every need.

That’s why Bishop Estabrook was a strong supporter of The Word Among Us Partners military outreach program, which supplies chaplains with materials to help people connect with God. Thanks to readers like you, 21,000 Catholic service men and women are receiving The Word Among Us magazine. Working with prison chaplains, we are reaching out to 52,000 inmates in the U.S. and Canada. Through crisis pregnancy centers and Project Rachel post-abortion ministries, some 6,500 women now have access to The Word Among Us as an aid to choosing life.

But many more are asking for help. Will you pray for these ministries and become a Partner? Please consider making a tax-deductible donation— of $100, $50, or whatever you can give—online at, or by sending a check to:
