Pope Francis has asked our parish to support Christians in the Holy Land. Through the Good Friday Collection, parishioners join with Catholics around the world to stand in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land.
Contributions to the Pontifical Good Friday Collection are instrument of peace in a troubled land.
In these challenging times in the Middle East, the support of the faithful means that the church will conduct parish ministry, provide Catholic education, feed the hungry, build housing for Christians, maintain shrines and operate refugee centers in the Holy Land. Christians, along with all of the clergy and religious who serve in the Holy Land, will deeply appreciate the prayers and financial help!
The political, religious and military challenges in the Holy Land are more complex than ever. The wars, unrest and instability have been especially hard on Christians. For more information about Christians in the Holy Land, visit www.myfranciscan.org/good-friday.
