Wednesday, August 28, 2013

lifeandfamilyimageThe upcoming month of September marks the beginning of a new year for schools and other educational institutions, and also the launching of a new pastoral year for dioceses across the country. In view of this new academic and pastoral year, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) again is posting 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 September 2013 include suggestions from the 22ndto the 26tht Sunday in Ordinary Time.  These suggestions can be easily adapted for family and personal prayer, particularly for the beginning of the school year, or for use with other groups or organizations. The texts for the month of September are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section “Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB”.
