Prayers for Catechetical Sunday

"Prayer makes your heart bigger, until it is capable of containing the gift of God himself. Prayer begets faith, faith begets love, and love begets service on behalf of the poor."  
                                                                                                                                                                    – Blessed Teresa of Calcutta 

This Catechetical Sunday (September 18, 2016) we reflect on the theme “Prayer: The Faith Prayed.” Prayer is a powerful way that we join in solidarity with poor and suffering people around the world. We ask that Christ protect those in need, and also that we might be his hands and feet as we reach out to others.

We offer a number of prayers for our brothers and sisters in need worldwide. We’ve also selected a handful by theme that you can incorporate into your ministry throughout the year:
