Location: All Parishes
This special collection is taken up in all parishes in the United States on Good Friday. It is taken up to help provide for the upkeep of holy sites and support the pastoral, charitable, educational and social works of Christians in the Holy Land. The Pontifical Good Friday Collection offers a direct opportunity for parishioners to be witnesses of peace. Their support is a sign of Christian unity, which helps protect the holy places. This annual collection unites all Christians with the Holy Land. These funds support Catholic schools, parishes and religious education in the Holy Land. The collection also preserves the shrines for pilgrims and provides assistance, including housing and food, for the poor and needy.
