Life and family suggestions for homilies and prayers of the faithful during May 2014Wednesday, April 30, 2014
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) continues to post possible homily ideas and prayers of the faithful to help link the Sunday liturgy with the national pastoral initiative for life and family. The suggestions for May 2014 also include suggested prayers of the faithful for the second National Week for Life and the Family, a CCCB initiative many dioceses will celebrate this coming May 11-18 on the theme “Families united in the joy of the Lord”. The life and family suggestions for homilies and prayers of the faithful on May 4, 11, 18 and 25 (the 3RD to 6TH Sundays of Easter) can also be replaced by or supplemented with the English-language suggestions for prayers of the faithful, which are on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section “2014 National Week for Life and the Family”. Similarly, an outline of liturgical suggestions in French is available on the CCCB French-language webpage.
