Year of the Family

Live the Joy of God's Love

 

What is the Year of the Family? Pope Francis established the Year of the Family on March 19, 2021, the solemnity of St. Joseph. This also marks the fifth anniversary of the publication of his apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia (“The joy of love”), which explores the beauty and joy found in family life. The Year of the Family will conclude on June 26, 2022, which is the start of the 10th World Meeting of Families in Rome... Read more here

Year of the Family Prayer

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in you we contemplate
the splendor of true love;
to you we turn with trust.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
grant that our families too
may be places of communion and prayer,
authentic schools of the Gospel
and small domestic churches.

Make us mindful
of the sacredness of the family,
and its beauty in God’s plan.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
Graciously hear our prayer.
Amen.
