The Year of Prayer

The Holy Father has asked that 2024 be a 'Year of Prayer' to prepare for the Jubilee. This section offers resources, including the Our Father in different languages.

The Holy Father has asked that 2024 be a ‘Year of Prayer’, as a preparatory year for the Jubilee. Dioceses are invited to promote initiatives to remind people of the centrality of both individual prayer and community prayer.

One idea might be for “pilgrimages of prayer” to be organised at a diocesan level – these would be effectively courses or ‘schools of prayer’ with monthly or weekly meetings, presided over by the local bishops, but open to the entire People of God. In addition, to help mark this year more fruitfully, the Dicastery for Evangelisation will publish a series of “Prayer Notebooks”, with material taken from the many forms of prayer to be found in the rich Catholic tradition.

Resources we have in this section are:
