Prayer

Cross

As Catholics, we recognize that prayer is of the utmost importance, an invaluable contribution to helping the poor overseas. It guides our actions, it binds us in solidarity to one another, and connects us more deeply with the grace that flows from God.

We invite you to explore these resources, include them in your ministries, classrooms and catechism classes; and share with them with your parishes or prayer groups. Photo by Josh Estey for CRS
