American and Foreign Christian Union

Organized, 1849, by union of the American Protestant Society, Foreign Evangelical Society, and the Christian Alliance, to convert Catholics to Protestantism. It worked in North and South America and Europe, for a number of years, withdrew from France, 1866, and from all Europe, 1873, and ultimately limited its efforts to supporting an American church in Paris.
