Good Friday 2018 Pontifical Collection in Support of the Holy Land

The Pontifical Collection for the benefit of the Holy Places is held this year on Good Friday, March 30, 2018. Today, as we know, living the Christian faith in the Middle East and in the Holy Land is not at all easy.

Christians are often subjected to forms of oppression and discrimination that undermine their living conditions. Keeping hope alive in such circumstances is both difficult and vitally important.

Consequently, the small Christian presence has great need of the support and attention of the entire Church. The generosity of our Canadian Catholic Church comes together effectively in the Good Friday Pontifical Collection.

The Apostle Paul said that in other words for his times: “So then, whenever we have opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially of the family of faith.” Galatians 6, 10
