Annual Good Friday Collection for the Holy Land


Pope Francis has asked our parish (and every parish throughout the world) to support the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, which helps maintain a Christian presence in the Holy Land. Your support helps the Church minister in parishes, provide Catholic schools and other religious education, and preserve the sacred shrines, such as the recent restoration of the Tomb of Christ in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The collection helps to support Christians who are the victims of increasing persecution in the midst of broader wars, unrest and instability that threatens to drive them out of the land where Jesus walked. When you contribute to the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, you become an instrument of peace and solidarity with the Christians in the Holy Land. The Archdiocese of New Orleans will take up this collection on Good Friday, March 30, 2018.
