Pontifical Good Friday Collection

Pope Francis has asked the Diocese of Gaylord to support the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, which helps Christians in the Holy Land. Our support helps the church ministers in parishes to 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.

Here in the Diocese of Gaylord, our support of this collection is included in our Catholic Services Appeal. Last year, our diocese donated $12,000 to the Pontifical Good Friday Collection through the CSA, and will be providing the same support again this year. Should you wish to make a separate contribution to this collection, you may do so by sending donations, noted as “Pontifical Good Friday Collection,” to the Diocese of Gaylord.

Through our contributions to the Pontifical Good Friday Collection, we become an instrument of peace and join with Catholics around the world in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land.
