Day of Continuous Prayer for Marriage & Family Life

——————————— Parish (6)

——————————————- is our parish day for prayer for Marriage & Family Life.

Marriage & Family Life continue to be two of the most important foundation stones on which society and the Church are built. In a fast changing world one of the tasks of the Church is to continue to uphold these two great elements of humanity and of spirituality.

We have some vital faith values that need to be lived out as we do this.

  1. The dignity of every human person

  2. Every family, whatever its combination, is a sacred place where Christ lives

  3. The marriage of a woman and man who choose to get married in and into the Church is one of the seven Sacraments and is due very particular respect and support from all of us

  4. As Catholics we are in communion with the Universal Church, the Regional Church, the Diocese, and the Parish, and we take our lead from this Communion

  5. We can only deal with the complexity of today’s Church and world when we bring it into prayer especially as parish communities where people live their lives

This day is a call to the whole parish to pray for Marriage & Family Life at home, at school, at any Mass that is celebrated on the day, at any prayer group meetings that might take place on ——- of the month etc. as well as those who have undertaken to pray for an hour for these intentions

If you would like to undertake an hour each month you can do so at any time. Please contact——————————————–

The future of humanity passes by way of the family.” (Blessed John Paul 11)
