Support Our Work in the Holyland

An excellent way to support the Christians in the Holy Land is to learn about their difficulties, their culture, and the place of the Church in their lives.

Learn how to help

Come to be in solidarity with them … one Church supporting another.  There are many ways to do this, but subscribing to the Holy Land Review is a way to stay in touch and to contribute financially.

Holy Land Review

Support this magazine that opens up sweeping vistas on the Holy Land of our times: current events and societal issues, spirituality, ecumenism, portraits of committed witnesses; photo journalism in places both strange and remote… Through The Holy Land Review you stay in touch year round with the Christians of the Middle East: getting to know them better is already a form of support. To obtain additional information and subscribe, call or contact the Commissariat in Washington (410.740.5009) or click here for more information.

Prayer Requests

Prayer is also a means to support the Holy Land; and bring you into the life of the Holy Land and the Holy Land into your life. You can help by your donations for Affiliations and Masses.

Affiliations

An affiliation is a communion in faith between the Christians who support the works of the Holy Land through their donations and the members of communities devoted to the works of the Holy Land. Both donors and the people of the Holy Land share in the fruitfulness of a spiritual family and its ecclesial mission through the Eucharistic celebrations, prayers, and works of the Franciscans, other Christians inhabiting the Holy Places, and pilgrims visiting them.

Donations for the Needs of the Holy Land to the Works

Many people support the Holy Land financially by contributing to their parish’s Good Friday Holy Land collections; however, supporting the works of the Holy Land through donations is possible at any time, and the needs are always great and your gifts are always appreciated.  It is possible to give in many ways: 

  1. Online, by going to Canada Helps;
  2. By Interac at: terresainte@bellnet.ca
  3. Sending cheques or money orders made payable to: Commissariat of the Holy Land.

Donations should simply indicate “for the needs of the Holy Land”; and donations over $20 will be issued with a tax receipt, at the end of the year.
