National Week for Life & the Family: May 14-21
The fifth National Week for Life and the Family will take place 14 to 21 May 2017. To assist Catholic dioceses, eparchies, and family life groups across Canada prepare to celebrate this National Week on the theme "Love Grows by Giving", the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) again posts possible homily ideas and prayers of the faithful to help link the liturgy each Sunday with the national pastoral initiative for life and family.
