In October this year, a meeting for the Extraordinary Synod on the Family will take place. Pope Francis has asked that we all pray for the success of the Synod. Prayer Cards/ Fridge Magnets are available at the Welcome Desk for us to pray with our daily meals. Pope Francis asks
“Dear families, your prayer for the Synod of Bishops will be a precious treasure which enriches the Church. I thank you, and ask you to pray also for me, so that I may serve the People of God in truth and in love. May the protection of the Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph always accompany all of you and help you to walk united in love and in caring for one another. I willingly invoke on every family the blessing of the Lord.”
From the Vatican 2 February 2014.
