Special Holy Land Collection
With Holy Week celebrations closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic,
The Vatican announced the pope approved a proposal to hold the collection in churches worldwide Sept. 13.
1. We will have a basket in the back of the church for just this collection at all of the Masses this weekend
2. Checks should be made out to St. EAS and Marked Holy Land in the memo line
3. Parishioners can drop money/envelopes off at the office or in the drop box through September 21st, in an envelope and clearly marked "Holy Land"
According to the Commissariats of the Holy Land, gifts from the Holy Land collection each year assist in funding the following programs:
Faith, Memory and Culture — The Holy Places
Holy Land Franciscans staff and maintain the holy places and shrines. This enables those who live in the Holy Land and those who visit to deepen their faith and their spiritual and cultural connection to salvation history.
Social and Charitable Activities
In order to assist Christians to remain in the Holy Land, including the poor and young couples, the Custody builds thousands of residential units. Additionally, they build senior care facilities. Medical assistance is provided for the needy.
Educational and Scientific Activities
The Franciscans operate and support schools open to all, regardless of religion or nationality. They provide scholarships for young men to answer the call to become Franciscan priests and brothers. Additionally, Franciscan archaeologists pursue ongoing research at the Holy Places.
The Franciscans provide pastoral care in 29 parishes in the Holy Land offering worship, Christian formation, and necessary youth and family programs, especially in regions affected by war.
Liturgical, Ecumenical and Communications Programs
The Christian Media Center tells the story of the Holy Land through multimedia distributed throughout the world in more than seven languages. The friars organize liturgical celebrations for local Christians and pilgrims and share with other Christian communities in the Holy Land in ongoing ecumenical cooperation.
