The family that prays together
WELCOME TO FAMILY PRAYER MISSION
Our objective is to help families to achieve sanctity and stability, by following the motto: The Family That Prays Together Stays Together. In other words, families must practise family prayer and grow as God-centred families. Hence our name “Family Prayer Mission.”
Message from the President
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The year 2020 was a very challenging year for millions of people across the globe. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted us in almost all areas of life - our daily activities, inter-personal relationships and our lifestyles in general.
As this period of suffering continues, the fear of the virus, various health regulations, and legal restrictions collectively impact our faith life.
The Family Prayer Mission (FPM), as a lay apostolate, has worked diligently for decades to uplift the faith, prayer life and spirituality among Christian families. For many years, FPM’s 3-day annual Lenten retreats attracted thousands of faithful and devout Catholics. Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, we were forced to cancel our 32nd annual Lenten Retreat last year. Due to the prolonged situation, as we all know, we are also not in the position to conduct the retreat in 2021.
However, FPM is prepared to introduce various meditational thoughts through our website regularly. We are grateful to HE Thomas Cardinal Collins, the Archbishop of Toronto, for his best wishes, prayers, guidance and support for FPM.
Thank you to the members, volunteers, and supporters of FPM for your encouragement and prayers for the mission. Please stay tuned for the meditational content and we encourage you to share it in your communities.
In this year of St. Joseph, we submit our mission to him, our earliest model of perseverance and faith.
St. Joseph, Pray for Us.
