Christians Helping Christians

The mission of the Holy Land Franciscans is to help keep Christians in the place where Christianity was born.  The Holy Land Gift Shop gives Christian artisans a marketplace outside the region to help their businesses succeed and their families thrive.

Contact us about helping Holy Land Christians by bringing our store to you!

Our Mission
Meet Our Artisans

Help the people in your parish learn the unique stories of these artisans and connect their lives to Christians struggling to live in the Holy Land.  Because of the economic and political situation in the region, the Christian population has been declining as people migrate to other areas looking for more opportunity. We’ll work with you to set up a weekend where we can bring our pop-up shop to your parish and share more about their lives and our mission. We’ll even provide resources to help you promote the event. We provide:

  • Gift shop representative
  • A variety of unique merchandise straight from the Holy Land
  • Informational handouts that help you learn more about the Christian artisans who make our products and how your purchase helps support them
  • An informational video, which can be shown after mass if you have a video screen

How do I know a product was made by Christians or benefits Christians in the Holy Land?

Just because an item is Christian doesn’t mean it was made by Christians.  You know products sold by the Holy Land Gift Shop benefit Christians because we personally source the items, purchasing from shops employing Christian artisans.

Bring Our Store to You!

Please note that we can only accommodate parishes within a 100-mile radius of the Franciscan Monastery in Washington, D.C. If you are outside of this area and are interested in having the Holy Land Gift Shop come to your parish, please email giorgio@myfranciscan.com. We’d love to talk with you and help your parishioners learn about Christians in the Holy Land and how they can help.
