Crusader CrossGood Friday Collection for the Holy Land

The annual “Good Friday Collection for the Holy Land” will be taken up in all parishes on Friday, April 3rd. All Christians are united in a special way during Holy Week and Easter. Christians in the Holy Land continue to suffer from the effects of war and religious intolerance. While we hear daily about the tragic violence and instability plaguing the Middle East, we hear little about the shrinking Christian communities in Israel and Palestine. These Christians are struggling to live and worship in their ancestral land, the land of Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection. Please help support our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land by giving to this special Good Friday Collection. This pontifical collection allows the Franciscans, custodians of the Holy Land for over 800 years, to continue caring for Christianity’s holiest sites and for God’s people in the Holy Land.

For more information about Holy Land Christian issues, visit holysepulchre.net/holyland/index.html. Please be generous in your support to sustain Christianity in the Holy Land.
