Life and family suggestions for homilies and prayers of the faithful during September 2016Monday, August 29, 2016
At this time of the year when young people begin a new school year and the 2016-2017 pastoral year starts, 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 September 2016 include suggestions from the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, September 4, to the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time, September 25. 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 September are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section “Documents and activities proposed by the CCCB“.
