2 friars walking to the boy

Support the Good Friday Collection

The Pontifical Good Friday Collection is the result of the Pope's wishes for the bond between all Christians in the world and the Holy Places to remain strong. The collection is taken up on Good Friday, in all Catholic Churches around the world, to support the work of the Franciscans of the Holy Land.

The Message from fr. Francesco Pattonfor the Good Friday Collection

On this occasion, we friars of the Custody of the Holy Land become beggars and we turn to you so that Good Friday may be a day of universal solidarity, a day on which Christians from all over the world take concrete care of the Mother Church of Jerusalem, which at this moment is in dire need of it.
