Collection for the Holy Land: generous effort needed from all Christians
The Good Friday collection for the Holy Land originates from the desire of Popes to maintain strong links between all Christians around the world and the Holy Places. It traditionally takes place on Good Friday and the main purpose is to support life in these places. This Collection help us to carry out the mission of conserving the holy places, the stones of memory, and of encouraging the Christian presence in the Holy Land, solidarity, maintenance of pastoral, educational, aid, healthcare and social structures.
The territories that benefit from the Collection are: Jerusalem, Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Turkey, Iran and Iraq. The Custody of the Holy Land receives most of the Collection; the part remaining with the Congregation for the Oriental Churches serves for the formation of candidates to the priesthood, the support of the clergy, school activity, cultural formation and subsidies to the various ecclesiastical circumscriptions throughout the Middle East. Please be as generous as you can! (Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches)
