Vocations “come and follow me”

“Pro Terra Sancta” Collection

The “Collection for the Holy Land”, also known as the “Collecta pro Locis Sanctis”, is the result of the Popes’ wishes for the bond between all the Christians in the world and the Holy Places to remain strong.

The Collection, which is traditionally made on Good Friday, is the main source of funds for the maintenance of the life around the Holy Places.

The offerings collected by the parishes and the Bishops are sent by the Commissars of the Holy Land to the Custody of the Holy Land. This offerings are used for the maintenance of the Holy Places and the Christians of the Holy Land, the living stones of the Holy Land.

The Custody thanks to the collect of the offerings is able to sustain and continue the important mission and vocation it owns: to keep and custody the Holy Places, the stones of the memory and preserve the christian presence, the living stones of the Holy Land trough many solidarity activities.
