Life and family suggestions for homilies and prayers of the faithful during April 2015Thursday, March 26, 2015
To assist in preparations for Holy Week and the celebrations of Easter, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) again posts possible homily ideas and prayers of the faithful to help link the Sunday liturgy with the national pastoral initiative for life and family. The proposed texts for the month of April 2015 include suggestions from the Resurrection of the Lord (Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday), April 4 and 5, to the 4TH Sunday of Easter, April 26. In addition, it includes suggestions for the Thursday of the Lord’s Supper and the Friday of the Passion of the Lord. As usual, the suggestions for homilies and prayers can 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 April are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section “Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB“.
