RE: SPECIAL COLLECTION ON GOOD FRIDAY (Terra Sancta)

 

Reverend Monsignori and Fathers:


On Good Friday, 29 March 2013, we shall take up again a special collection (Terra Sancta) for the maintenance and promotion of religious and humanitarian activities of the Catholic communities and institutions in the Holy Land. Please see attached copy of the letter from the Congregatio Pro Ecclesiis Orientalibus about the significance and impact of prayer and support to the Churches where the Gospel was first preached and yet experience persecution and marginalization.


In this regard, please make a special collection and remit proceeds for the above-mentioned intentions to the Bishop’s office within ten (10) days.


Thank you.


Sincerely yours,


REV. FR. CARMELO O. ESTORES

Chancellor
