Catholics around the world are asked to contribute to the annual Pontifical Collection benefiting the Holy Land on Good Friday, April 3.
Christians world-wide are united in a special way during Lent, Holy Week and Easter. Our hearts, minds and prayers are also especially aware of the Holy Land. Parishes in the Diocese of Orlando will participate in the annual Good Friday collection to support Christians in the Holy Land. Many Christians in the Holy Land depend on the collection for their lives. As a pontifical collection requested by Pope Francis, the annual Good Friday Collection offers a direct link for parishioners to be witnesses of peace and to help protect the Holy Places. When you donate on Good Friday, you are supporting Christians in the Holy Land. Franciscans and others in the Holy Land are housing and feeding the poor, providing religious formation and education, maintaining shrines and parishes, and conducting pastoral ministry. For more information, visit MyFranciscan.org/good-friday. The Good Friday Collection is requested by the Holy Father. Please be as generous as your abundance allows
