Even during this period of social isolation due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Sunday liturgy continues to offer nourishment for prayer and reflection throughout the week – whether we are reflecting on the readings, or following Mass via a television broadcast and celebrating in spiritual Communion.


The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) continues to post possible homily ideas and prayers of the faithful to help link the Sunday liturgy with the national pastoral initiative for life and family.

The proposed texts for the month of September 2020 include suggestions from the 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, 6 September, to the 26th  Sunday in Ordinary Time, 27 September.

As usual, the suggestions for homilies and prayers can be easily adapted for family prayer, as well as for personal prayer or for use with other groups or organizations.

The texts for the month of September are available on the special Life and Family webpage, under the section “Suggestions for Homilies & Prayers of the Faithful”.
