Pope Francis has asked our parish to support Christians in the Holy Land. Through the Good Friday collection, you stand in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land as a witness of peace. Your support means that our church will conduct parish ministry, provide Catholic education, feed the hungry, build housing for Christians, maintain shrines and operate refugee centers in the Holy Land. Like Simon of Cyrene, you can help carry the cross under very difficult circumstances in the Holy Land. Christians, along with all of the clergy and religious who serve in the Holy Land, will deeply appreciate your prayers and financial help! For more information, visit www.myfranciscan.org/good-friday.
