Franciscans of the Holy Land

Every Good Friday, in every Catholic parish in the country, a special collection is taken up for the Franciscans of the Holy Land. Ever since the 14th century, the Franciscans have been assigned the task of caring for the holiest sites of Christianity in and around Israel—54 shrines and sanctuaries in total. The Franciscans have also created a monastery in Washington, DC.
