Restorative Justice Month

We invite you to pray with us for all of November as we observe Restorative Justice Month.

Special prayer intentions are provided below for each of the four Sundays during the month. Feel free to include individual intentions in your personal prayers for anyone affected by crime and/or the justice system.

Sunday, November 7, 2021

We pray for crime survivors and for those killed violently.

Sunday, November 14, 2021

We pray for prisoners and ex-prisoners and their families.

Sunday, November 21, 2021

We pray for the reform of our nation’s criminal justice and immigration system so that it becomes more restorative and less punishing in its solutions to rehabilitating people and family unity.

Sunday, November 28, 2021

We pray for communities’ response to violence and their willingness to play their role within the restorative justice and practices lens.
