On Good Friday, parishes will take up the annual Good Friday Collection for the Holy Land. Your financial contribution helps to support the struggling Christian community and to protect Christianity’s holiest places. Please be generous. The Holy Land Franciscans have been appointed by Pope Benedict XVI to conduct the annual Good Friday collection.
