Special prayers for peace in the Holy Land

Monday, March 21 2011

The Executive Committee of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops is proposing to the Bishops of Canada that celebrations of the Way of the Cross on Good Friday include special prayers for peace in the Holy Land and throughout the Middle East.

Suggestions for Good Friday 2011 have been prepared in English and French. The texts are provided in Word (to make any possible adaptations easier) as well as in PDF (formatted as a two-fold pamphlet to be printed on 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper). These can be downloaded, adapted and used free of charge by dioceses, parishes, religious communities or other not-for-profit organizations.
