Where We Serve

Where the Stories of Our Faith Live

Today, Franciscans serve in the following countries: Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and the islands of Cyprus and Rhodes. Some 300 friars are present in these countries, working in collaboration with about 100 sisters from various congregations.

The Franciscans serve the principal shrines of the Redemption, among which the Holy Sepulchre, the Nativity at Bethlehem and the Annunciation at Nazareth hold pride of place.

When you support the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America, you support an historical landmark and an oasis of peace in the middle of busy Washington, D.C. But your support does so much more. Your support provides assistance to Christians in the Holy Land. You allow Christianity to remain and thrive in the Holy Land. Support us today.
