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.
