Pontifical Good Friday Collection; April 15, 2022
The Holy Land collection is a parish collection taken on Good Friday, April 15. Contributions help the Franciscans of the Custody of the Holy Land as they serve as a bridge between the Holy Land and Catholics all over the world. If you have been to the Holy Land you would have experienced many of the activities of the Franciscans. They support sacred shrines, minister to parishes, provide formation and education to communities and schools and care for the basic needs of the people. With your help, the Franciscans can continue to be a light of hope to those living in darkness in the Holy Land.  Parishes should forward all contributions to the Center for Mission for distribution.
