Synod on the Family

Visitation Province

Remembering the Holy Family as our model, let us recall their marginalization.

Like so many, the Holy family, too encountered ridicule for being different.

In remembering them, help us to lift up and celebrate all loving families. May we be generous in spirit, compassion, forgiveness and love.

In celebration of all the diverse forms of love that embody family life today, let us pray in gratitude

We pray, God, with our siblings in faith for all families…

For LGBT families. Families of various abilities. Interracial families. Families of multiple faiths. Single parent families. Families of religious communities. Blended and adoptive families. Traditional families. Multicultural families.

For these and all the communities of love in your worldwide church, Let us pray for greater increase in love amongst our global community.

For all the ways we are family to each other, we pray. Amen.

This inclusive family prayer from the Catholic reform group Call to Action in collaboration with members of the Catholic Organizations for Renewal lifts up and celebrates all loving families in our church. Please join in praying with all Catholic families as we faithfully live our lives following the Synod on the Family.
