Mass collection for Good Friday will help Christians in the Holy Land



Prefect, Congregation for the Oriental Churches
“We have a duty to help them. The Christians there are the heirs to the history of the Church, not only in Israel and Palestine, but in all of the Middle East.” 

The Holy Land is the birthplace to Jesus and the first Christian communities. However, nearly 2,000 years later, their day to day lives are under pressure. 

Prefect, Congregation for the Oriental Churches 
“We have a greater duty of solidarity, a duty to say we are here to support you, so that the holy sites can be looked after, so they can be visited and maintained.” 

The additional economic help will not only help preserve these historic monuments, but also help maintain Christian communities in the birthplace of Christianity.
