Good Friday Collection!Posted: 03/05/2012
Christians around the world are united in a special way during Lent, Holy Wek and Easter.
Our hearts, minds and prayers are also especially aware of the Holy Land. One a year, on Good Friday, our parishes are called on to support Christians in the Holy Land. As a pontifical collection requested by Pope Benedict XVI, the annual Good Friday collection ofers 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 Lands. Franciscan and others in the Holy Land are housing and feeding the poor, providing formation and education, maintaining shrines and parishes, and conducting pastoral ministry.
