Preparing for the Jubilee Year 2025

In preparation for the 2025 Jubilee Year ‘Pilgrims of Hope’, 2024 has been designated a Year of Prayer by Pope Francis, with a particular focus on the Our Father.

‘Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when He finished, one of his disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray…” ‘

Luke 11:1

Someone once said that ‘prayer doesn’t help our relationship with God, prayer IS our relationship with God!’ and so when we become more devoted to prayer, we are building up that Divine friendship. Being Pilgrims of Hope means that we should always be growing in our love of prayer on our journey of Faith.

“I would greatly desire that we devote 2024, the year preceding the Jubilee event, to a great ‘symphony’ of prayer.’” Pope Francis.

Prayer is a gift from God, a sacred connection that fosters a living relationship with the divine Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Our school display encourages us to think about our own life of prayer: what we pray, how we pray and why we pray.

Here are some ideas to support your family’s prayer life.
