A special collection will be taken on Good Friday to support Christians in the Holy Land in Catholic churches throughout the world.
In an interview with EWTN, Vatican Cardinal Leonardo Sandri said that the Good Friday Collection is a moment for all Catholics to be united in supporting the places where Jesus lived, died, and rose again.
“It is truly a providential opportunity for the whole Catholic Church to take advantage of this collection to live the Good Friday of the Passion and death of the Lord in union with the holy places in which Jesus lived,” said Sandri, who serves as the prefect of the Congregation for the Eastern Churches.
This year’s Good Friday collection will be taken in parishes worldwide on April 15. It is the main source of material support for Christian life in the region. U.S. Catholics can donate to the collection online, as well as at churches.
