National Day of Prayer

for the

African-American Family

Sunday, February 5 
The National Day of Prayer for the African American and African Family was created by Fr. James Goode, OFM in 1989. It is a day set aside to give special thanks to God for our families and place our every care in the arms of Jesus.  
  • Worship together at the Eucharistic Table and pray as a family.
  • Celebrate a meal together and tell your family story
  • Set aside some time to read the Family Bible. Pray to the Blessed Virgin, for the needs of all families throughout the world.
  • Pray in solidarity with our African sisters and brothers in the Motherland.
