Today I want to highlight the wonderful work of the friars in the Holy Land who have been guardians of the Holy Sites of Christianity. The friars serve in the Holy Land providing programs for preservation, education, peace, and social justice to Christians and people of all faiths. I encourage you to keep up with all the news of the Holy Land and the merciful work of the friars in the links below. Please pray for all the Franciscans working in the Holy Land!

The Hermitage at the Franciscan Monastery in DC has been awarded a donation of $70,000 to build another hermitage for retreats. They are in need of another $30,000 to make the building of a second hermitage a reality. Contact the Franciscans if you can help at the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land Hermitage Fund.
