Solemnity of Christ the King - Novena for Religious Freedom

In its core document, Our First, Most Cherished Liberty: A Statement on Religious Liberty, the USCCB Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty "urge[d] that the Solemnity of Christ the King-a feast born out of resistance to totalitarian incursions against religious liberty-be a day specifically employed by bishops and priests to preach about religious liberty, both here and abroad." Let us pray fervently that we will help others encounter anew Christ, our King, bringing the Gospel to the margins of society, that all might bear witness to Him before others.

The Church celebrates the Solemnity of Christ the King on November 21, 2021.  November 12-20, the nine days preceding the Solemnity, let us offer our prayers to Christ the King for the freedom of the Church.

Walking With Moms In Need

WHAT IS WALKING WITH MOMS IN NEED?


Walking with Moms in Need is a year of service, supported by the USCCB, where Catholic parishes and communities "walk in the shoes" of local pregnant and parenting women in need. Everyone should know how to help moms in difficult circumstances. While not trying to turn Catholic parishes into pregnancy centers, we can support local pregnancy centers where they exist, and we can also find and share other resources with pregnant and parenting women. And where there are few local resources, we can create our own, based on the gifts of the parish community! 

We hope you and your parish will join us in this Year of Service. For more information on what you and your parish can do go to:  https://www.walkingwithmoms.com/parish-resources
