2016WeekofLifeandFamily ENAs Catholic dioceses together with family life groups across Canada prepare to celebrate the 2016 National Week for Life and the Family, May 8-15, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) again posts possible homily ideas and prayers of the faithful to help link the liturgy each Sunday with the national pastoral initiative for life and family. The proposed texts for the month of May 2016 include suggestions from the 6TH Sunday of Easter, May 1, to the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), May 29, as well as Pentecost Sunday, May 15, and the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, May 22. Proposals for homilies and prayers of the faithful during the National Week for Life and the Family are provided both in these suggestions for the month of May, as well as in the resources specifically prepared for the National Week. As usual, the suggestions for homilies and prayers can also be easily adapted for family prayer, as well as for personal prayer or for use with other groups or organizations. The texts for the month of May are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section "Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB".
