Center for Mission - Good Friday Collection

The Pontifical Good Friday Collection supports Christians and programs in the Holy Land. At the request of the Holy Father, collections support the Holy Land Franciscans as they nourish and minister to the many pastoral, educational and humanitarian needs of the Holy Land, including shrines that are important to our faith. For example, last year the appeal supported four homes for orphans, 10,000 Report on Sacrificial Giving: March 3rd & 4th, 2018 students pre-K through grade 12, rehabilitated 80 homes for Christian families, senior care facilities in Bethlehem and Nazareth and helped to preserve 54 Christian shrines. On March 30th, please stand in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land and help our Franciscan brothers and sisters.
