30 Days of Prayer for Justice in the New Year
January 18 - February 16
30 Days of Prayer for Justice in the New Year is a journey of prayer and reflection focusing on the history and continuing reality of racial injustice in the United States. Saint Clement has created a resource with daily reflections beginning on January 18th, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, through February 16th, just before the start of Lent.
This resource is available as a pdf document here. There are a number of ways to engage with this resource and join in prayer with our parish community over these 30 days:
- Pray with an existing small faith group or ministry
- Pray individually or as a family
- Pray in community via Zoom or Facebook
- Facilitated Zoom sessions will be held at 12:00 p.m. every day to pray each day’s reflection as a group. To receive the Zoom link that will be used for all 30 days, please fill out this registration form.
- A Facebook group has been created to share thoughts and reactions to each day’s reflection. For the link to access the Facebook group, click here.
This prayer journey challenges us as Catholics and as members of Saint Clement to confront the institutional racism in our country and in our local communities, to humbly examine our role -- as a predominantly white community -- in systems of oppression, and to prayerfully commit to working for justice on behalf of all people. We hope you will join us.
