2020 Prayer Resources

2020 Prayer Resource cover

Prayer is essential at the commencement of a Board meeting for focus, to reinforce Catholic identity and to call God’s blessings on the proceedings. Prayer time is also formative as it allows those present to examine aspects of life, faith and experience. 

In 2020, our board prayer resource focusses on key learnings from St Francis’ second encyclical, Laudato Si’: on care for our common home

Board Prayer Resources Introduction: using the prayer resource for meetings or reflection time

1. Everyone and everything matters
2. We are all part of creation
3. The legacy and gift of St Francis
4. The human roots of the ecological crisis
5. The situation is serious

6. Climate change harms the poor
7. Working together for the Earth
8. The challenge of technology
9. The throwaway culture
10.Towards a new theology
