Catholic Voice Emergency Project
Ukraine has been under siege, causing Catholic media to suffer a lack of funding. Help us to preserve the voice of our Church.

Who We Are
Ukrainian Catholic Press Association (UCPA) is a group of professional Catholic Media.
The association, founded in 2015 in Lviv, is composed of media representing the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church and the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine. Since its founding, the UCPA’s press media produced primarily journals and magazines. Our mission is to promote the printing and distribution of Catholic press throughout Ukraine and promote the dispersion of Catholic news through the internet and radio.
UCPA is acting with the permission and blessing of the Church Authorities. It has 6 Members and 3 Associated Members. You can see the list with links for their websites here.
As you can imagine, Catholic media simply cannot produce material without employees. Each employee’s salary is about 600 euro/650 US dollars. We already know that we won’t be able to sell the next issue of our magazines or receive donations from our Ukrainian readership; however, we also know that we cannot stop striving to produce material that clarifies our message as a Church, whether it be through print, radio, or the internet.
The impact of each media source ranges from 2,000 to 20,000 Ukrainian readers/listeners daily – far more than the typical four-person staff of a press or media office. We intend to save at least 70 Catholic journalists’ jobs, which would preserve Catholic news for at least 100,000 Ukrainians. Will you join us in this impactful initiative?

How Can You Help Us
You can help us provide 1/2 of the salaries for catholic journalists in Ukraine. If we could grant the 300 euro / 300 US dollars monthly (which is the official minimum in Ukraine) we can save one working place in the Catholic Media.
You can support the professional Catholic Media during the harsh wartime in Ukraine.
