Life and family suggestions for homilies and prayers of the faithful during May 2017Wednesday, May 3, 2017
The fifth National Week for Life and the Family will take place 14 to 21 May 2017. As Catholic dioceses and eparchies together with family life groups across Canada prepare to celebrate this National Week on the theme “Love Grows by Giving“, 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 2017 include suggestions from the 4TH Sunday of Easter, 7 May, to the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord, 28 May. 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“.
