Dear Friends, this Good Friday, thousands of parishes across the country will be taking up a collection to help the Christian Cause in the Holy Land. The Catholic Church’s mission in Israel relies on that collection for its upkeep more than any other revenue stream, and the generosity of Catholics has maintained that stream for centuries.

The only problem is that not all Catholics will be in Church this Good Friday. The Holy Land puts its hand out once a year; won’t you help extend that hand a bit by encouraging prayers and support for the Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land? A little help will go a long way in the lives of thousands of suffering Christian Palestinians this Easter.

Please, be generous, and encourage your friends in their generosity. God will reward your work.

Yours in Christ,
