The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has requested prayers for the Synod of Bishops. The Synod, taking place October 5-19, will address the topic:
The Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization. All the faithful are invited to cover the Synod in individual and group prayer in the days leading up to the synod and during the synod itself. Families, above all, are encouraged to pray together. Suggested prayers include the Rosary and prayers to the Holy Family.
