Porticus North America believes that vibrant and inclusive communities of faith play an important role in promoting social justice and ensuring that the dignity of each person is respected. We strive to support projects aimed at promoting dialogue and enhancing the Church's role in today's diverse societies.
Porticus North America has a special interest in supporting:
- Hispanic and First Nations Ministries. We are especially interested in projects that seek to cultivate the development of Hispanic or First Nations lay leadership in churches in the United States and/or Canada.
- Youth Ministry. Porticus North America supports comprehensive youth ministry. We seek to support programmes with a solid foundation in Catholic Social Teaching and that speak to the needs of today’s youth. We prefer programmes that empower youth to become more actively engaged in society.
