Pope Francis has asked our parish to support the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, which helps Christians in the Holy Land. This collection is being taken up this weekend. Your support helps the church minister in parishes, provide Catholic schools and offer religious education. The Pontifical Good Friday Collection also helps to preserve the sacred shrines.
The wars, unrest and instability have been especially hard on Christians. In these times of crisis, the Pontifical Good Friday Collection provides humanitarian aid to refugees.
When you contribute to the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, you become an instrument of peace and join with Catholics around the world in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land.
PLEASE BE GENEROUS!
If you did not bring your donation with you, you may bring it next week, drop it in the mail, or put it in our mail slot. Use your Holy Land envelope if you have it, and if not mark your envelope “Holy Land Collection.” If paying by check, make a note in the memo section that the gift is a Holy Land donation.
