December 2019: Mindful of our community’s Families, and the struggles and challenges some face, we pray…
December 1. For single-parent families, adoptive families, foster families, and for households that are communities of friends; for elderly persons living in their own homes, in retirement communities, and in nursing institutions.
December 8. For persons who are lonely or have no family; for persons who are estranged from their families; for persons who are grieving the loss of a loved one; and for all who need to feel the love of God.
December 15. For the care and protection of infants, children, and youth; and for the intimate knowledge that each one is a beloved child of God.
December 22. For an end to child abuse; for healthy relationships between children and their caregivers; for families going through divorce; and for all in the midst of life transitions.
December 29. For peace, reconciliation, forgiveness and accord among family members, whatever the distance, and however old the hurt or grievance.
