At Home

We, parents, are the educators of our families. We are the living examples of future generations. Start at home working to have a healthy relationship with your partner, this good example is going to model their attitude about relationships in the future. Talk to your kids and teach them the difference between healthy ways to resolve conflicts and discourage selfishness. Promote love and understanding.

Pray

Jesus taught, “…I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you”
— Matthew 17:20

We know the power of prayer, so when you pray please:

  • Pray for all those touched today by Domestic Abuse and violence: victim survivors, the children who have witnessed and or experienced abuse and violence, the abuser, the extended family, the church family, and the greater community.
  • Pray that they may know that God is with them and that they can ask the Holy Spirit for guidance.
  • Pray that each person may experience God’s message of love and hope through our interaction with them.
  • Pray for those already lost to Domestic Violence and their families. May God keep them in his care.

The National Council of Catholic Women dedicated the first Saturday of each month as a monthly day of prayer for Women’s Concerns.

We have listed a few prayers related to Domestic Violence in the Prayer section of this website.
