Good Friday Special Collection - Holy Land

Dear Friends in Christ,

Our diocese is called on to support Christians in the Holy Land on Good Friday, April 19, 2019. Through the Good Friday Collection, you join with Catholics from around the world to stand in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land. When you contribute to the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, you become an instrument of peace and join with Catholics around the world in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land.

Pope Francis has asked all of us to support the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, which helps Christians in the Holy Land. Your support helps the church minister in parishes, provide Catholic schools and offer religious education.

The Pontifical Good Friday Collection also helps to preserve the sacred shrines. The wars, unrest and instability have been especially hard on Christians. In these times of crisis, the Pontifical Good Friday Collection provides humanitarian aid to refugees.

Our diocese will support Christians in the Holy Land through the Good Friday Collection. We stand in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land as a witness of peace, supporting Catholics there in parishes and schools, maintaining Christian shrines and caring for refugees in the Holy Land.

Please be as generous as your abundance allows.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Michael J. Sheridan

Bishop of Colorado Springs
