Good Friday Pontifical Collection on April 14, 2017 for the benefit of the Holy Land
The Pontifical Collection for the benefit of the Holy Places is scheduled this year on Good Friday April 14, 2017. Our parish, once a year on Good Friday, is called to support Christians in the Holy Land. Many Christians in the Holy Land depend on the collection for their lives.
As a Pontifical collection requested by Pope Francis, the annual Good Friday Collection helps to maintain not only the Holy Places above all, but also the pastoral, welfare, educational and social works that the Church carries out to the benefit of the Christian brothers and sisters and the local population.
