"Lord teach us to Pray" Christchurch Diocesan Year of Prayer Conference 2024

Jubilee Year Logo

Pope Francis has declared 2024 a Year of Prayer for the Catholic Church as a lead up to the Jubilee Year in 2025. In preparation for the Jubilee, dioceses are invited to promote initiatives to remind people of the centrality of both individual prayer and community prayer.

One of the ways that the Christchurch Diocese is doing this is by holding a Year of Prayer one day Conference at the end of July, 2024.

The theme of this conference is “Lord, teach us to pray”. This scripture is from the Gospel of St Luke, chapter 11, verse 1 where the apostles ask Jesus to ‘teach them to pray”. As Pope Francis has requested, all of us need to “rediscover the centrality of prayer … Let us renew every day the joy and commitment to be men and women of prayer”.

The theme of the Year of Prayer is The Our Father. This was Jesus’ response to the Apostles when they asked him how to pray. Pope Francis asks us during the year to make the Our Father “the life programme of each of his disciples”. During the conference there will be talks about The Our Father.
