For those 14 years and older Good Friday is a day of abstinence from Meat. It is also a day of fasting, (one full meal and two smaller ones, eating between meals is not permitted) for those between the ages of 18 & 59 years.
Each year the Good Friday collection provides the necessary basic cash flow, operating income if you will, to sustain the Catholic institutions in the Holy Land.
It is our collective privilege and duty to preserve our tangible heritage in our Christian Holy Land.
Please give generously.
