An Introduction to Family Prayer Night

Overcoming Obstacles to Family Prayer


Often, it is precisely over parents requiring daily participation in family prayer and the family dinner that conflicts arise. As Pope Paul VI observed, “We are well aware that the changed conditions of life today do not make family gatherings easy, and that even when such a gathering is possible many circumstances make it difficult to turn it in to an occasion of prayer. There is no doubt of the difficulty. But it is characteristic of the Christian in his manner of life not to give in to circumstances but to overcome them, not to succumb but to make an effort. Families which want to live in full measure the vocation and spirituality proper to the Christian family must therefore devote all their energies to overcoming the pressures that hinder family gatherings and prayer in common.”

How to Start Family Prayer Night Devotions

Parish Family Prayer Night Devotions are weekly liturgical or para-liturgical services that include family-led prayers before the Most Holy Blessed Sacrament, and are lay organized and maintained.

They are led by the lay faithful in response to Pope John Paul II’s request for family to family assistance in the spirit of The New Evangelization, when he said: “Prayer must become the dominant element...in the Church: prayer by the family, prayer for the family, and prayer with the family.”

We provide a free booklet on How to Start Family Prayer Night Devotions and Eucharistic adoration in your parish community. In it, you will find everything you need to get started.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, Protectress of the Unborn, put an end to human sacrifice in Mexico and converted 8 million hearts to the Gospel of Life.

Family Prayer Night 25th Anniversary

Parish’s Family Prayer Night set to mark 25 years
By Jeff Kurowski | The Compass

GREEN BAY — Many of the faces have changed and recently, the day of the week changed, but over the past 25 years, the mission of Family Prayer Night at St. Agnes Church has remained the same. The weekly gathering provides a vehicle to spend time with the Lord in a prayer-rich environment.

Family Prayer Night’s origin dates back to October of 1990 when a group of people wanted to pray together and continue a special devotion to the Blessed Mother. Their inspiration included pilgrimages to Medjugorje, prayer at Holy Hill in Hubertus, Wis., and a rosary rally at the Chapel of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion.

Chastity, Mass Media & Respect Life

Why Chastity

WHY CHASTITY

Formation in chastity is the formation of personality: who we are, what we believe and stand for, how we act and treat other people, and most of all, how we love.

It touches upon the secrets of our very nature and involves the most intimate depths of our body and soul. This formation will determine whether or not we become people of integrity, honor, and justice. In truth, only a chaste person is truly free to give and receive pure love.

Youths who watched more sexual content were more likely to initiate intercourse and progress to more advanced noncoital sexual activities in the year following the beginning of the study...Basically, kids with higher exposure to sex on TV were almost twice as likely than kids with lower exposure to initiate sexual intercourse. - Study Conducted by RAND

RESPECT LIFE

RESPECT LIFE

For a house to be a home, it is necessary that it be welcoming, hospitable, open to life, stable, safe, and warm with affection and love. Both father and mother must have the most profound reverence for the sanctity of life and its transmission in the sanctuary of the womb, as they cooperate with God in love and in the creation of human life.

The Church has recognized more than 150 Eucharistic Miracles that have been granted by Our Lord as testimony to the truth: ordinary bread and wine becomes the Body and Blood of Jesus at the words of Consecration during every valid Mass celebrated throughout history.

We chose 10 important miracles from an International Exhibition of 153 miracles for your information and consideration.

A video presentation of selected miracles is also being developed. Please check back again.
