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.
