Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Greetings of Peace and all Good!

During the holy seasons of Lent and Easter, many pilgrims will make their way to Holy Land. They will visit places where central events of our faith took place. However, this year, due to the Covid -19 pandemic, pilgrimages were cancelled and Holy Land became empty of pilgrims. Churches were also empty without the faithful during the lockdown as they had to stay at home. As these happened, Holy Land Franciscans prayed for all the people in the world who are suffering because of the pandemic and especially for our Christian brothers and sisters living in the Holy Land. They face more challenges in their livelihood as tourism and the economy have taken a downturn. 

So this year, the Pontifical Collection for Holy Land will be even more significant. Your support will help over 10,000 children in schools, senior citizens and provide homes and jobs for Christian families through a wide range of services. 

This year, the collection mandated by the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XV since October 4, 1918 and is taken up in every parish around the world on Good Friday was postponed to the Sunday nearest the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.  

 I am writing in the spirit of universal collaboration to appeal to you to give to the collection that traditionally was made on Good Friday in every part of the world for support of our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land on 13 September 2020.

This year’s Holy Land collection will be collected at all Masses on 13 September 2020 at all parishes. 

Not all of you will be able to attend mass on 13th September to give your donation. 

However, you can still send your donation
