Special Collection

Each year on Good Friday, dioceses and parishes in Canada and around the world hold a collection for the needs of the Church in the Holy Land. In the celebration of the Lord’s Passion, Catholics pray for the needs of all the world and they remember in a special way the Holy Land and its people, including its Christians who have lived in the Holy Land since the time of Christ. The funds collected are used for the upkeep of the sanctuaries and to help with pastoral work, Catholic schools and social assistance in the Holy Land.
