The Presiding Bishop announces the annual Good Friday Offering.
“In spite of the challenges, the strength and vitality of the witness of indigenous Christians throughout the Middle East is inspiring,” Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori writes in the annual Good Friday letter to all congregations asking them to consider assistance for Jerusalem and the Middle East.
“The Good Friday Offering provides essential funding to strengthen the visibility of the Christian presence throughout the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East,” the Presiding Bishop writes. “That funding is critical to the ongoing ministry of both institutions, as well as others in the region.”
Funds collected from the Good Friday Offering are gathered and distributed to the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East which includes the Dioceses of Jerusalem and Cyprus and the Gulf, all members of the Anglican Communion.
