Secretariat of Solidarity
for Catholic Schools and Institutions

 

In 1977 the Congregation for the Oriental Churches established the Secretariat of Solidarity for Catholic Schools and Institutions in the Holy Land under the guidance of the Apostolic Delegate in Jerusalem, with two main tasks:

  1. to allocate the ordinary subsidies that the Congregation for the Oriental Churches sends every year for the Catholic schools and educational institutions in the Holy Land – approximately 80 schools (from nursery to secondary) distributed among Palestinian Territories, Israel, Jordan and Cyprus;
  2. to receive and analyze applications for extraordinary subsidies submitted to ROACO (Riunione Opere Aiuto Chiese Orientali), serving as a bridge between the international aid agencies and the local Catholic institutions.

Pontifical Mission for Palestine

 

      The Pontifical Mission for Palestine (PMP) is an agency of the Holy See established by Pope Pius XII in 1949 to act as the Holy See’s special agency for humanitarian and charitable assistance to the people of the Holy Land without distinction of nationality or religion. Although its first office was established in Beirut, other offices were opened later in Jerusalem and Amman.

      PMP continues to support church and local community institutions in areas where the church is present, in addition to supporting social, cultural, recreational and spiritual programs for the youth as well as short-term and longer-term employment opportunities for the unemployed.

The Secretary General of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA) in New York City is the President of the Pontifical Mission.
