Support the Holy Land

View of the Negev

This land is loved and desired by many. All of us are called on to take care of it, protect it and feel it is ours. It is at the origin of our culture, our history and our religion…This is why everybody has to support it!” 
Father Pierbattista Pizzaballa, ofm

Give your support to the Holy Places, dear to the whole of Christianity and the Christian communities in the Holy Land!

  • With your “prayer” for the Land where Jesus lived; to support the work of the Franciscans of the Holy Land and kindle vocations
  • With a “pilgrimage” to the Holy Land to discover the Places that gave rise to our faith and where we have our roots
  • With “voluntary service” to help us take care of the Places and the Christian communities of the Holy Land
  • By sending your contribution ONLINE, through your BANK or with a Post Office pay-in slip (Italy)

Every day in their prayers, the Franciscans of the Custody remember those who, in any form whatsoever, help the Holy Land.
