Build the Faith
“Empowering Communities through Faith and Hope”
At Build the Faith, we believe in the power of faith and its ability to transform lives. Founded by the remarkable 9 year-old Christina Dangond and her dedicated parents during her battle with cancer.
Our 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization is on a mission to build churches, and retreat houses in areas of economic distress around the world. We firmly believe that these sacred spaces serve as pillars of strength, hope, and unity within communities in need.
Join us on this incredible journey of hope and resilience. Together, let’s Build the Faith and make a lasting impact on communities in economic distress.
Since our founding in 2016, the proceeds from our handmade rosaries together with the generous donations from our supporters, have enabled us to build Three churches, one retreat house and one convent in five different countries. We are also able to support families, youth and adults in their Catholic faith through our annual retreats, youth rosary workshops, Music Festival and through our weekly newsletter and blog.
Why churches and retreat houses? These sacred spaces go beyond religious practices. They are places where people gather, find spiritual guidance, seek comfort, and discover renewed hope. By providing communities with these places of worship, reflection, and support, we empower them to face adversity, strengthen their bonds, and unlock their full potential.
Our Hand-made Rosaries
The Holy Rosary is widely recognized as one of the most potent prayers available. Crafted with meticulous care and deep devotion, our handmade Rosaries are infused with love and prayer. It is our heartfelt desire that those who receive them may be enveloped in abundant blessings from the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
