Maundy Thursday and Good Friday Offering 2023

We hope you will respond compassionately when plates are passed.
This year’s Maundy Thursday and Good Friday offering will go to St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Nablus, home to Jacob’s Well, where Christ revealed himself as the Messiah to the Samaritan woman, an outcast.

Today, Nablus is also home to over 300,000, including a large refugee camp, and is surrounded by Israeli settlements. St. Luke’s is Nablus’s only charitable hospital and provides both general and specialty medical care and surgical services. At a time when fewer and fewer Christians live in the land we call Holy, the Diocese of Jerusalem continues to respond actively to the need for healthcare in areas where many cannot afford it, making no distinction between religion, ethnicity, or gender and offering hope to those otherwise living in despair.

We hope you will respond compassionately, as Jesus did to the Samaritan woman when the plates are passed at Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services.

Checks can be made out to St. Mark’s with GFO on the subject line. For further information, contact Maureen Shea of the Mid East Working Group – mtshea[at]
