YEAR OF THE DOMESTIC CHURCH
On Sunday, December 27, 2020, we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the Inauguration of the Year of the Domestic Church in the Diocese of Austin, under the patronage of St. Joseph.

Throughout the next year, we will focus on twelve monthly themes with accompanying resources. No matter whether your household is a home of one person or a family of many, we are all called to bear witness to and share the Gospel with our families and within our households. These monthly themed items will be ready to for parishes to utilize, implement or share on the first Friday of the previous month.

We ask for the intercession of St. Joseph that we may we experience the merciful love of God throughout the next year as we grow in faith in our household, personal and parish family.

Week of Prayer to End Human Trafficking - January 11-17, 2021




In 2019, Texas First Lady Cecilia Abbott announced an initiative to end child exploitation and sex trafficking in Texas. The Governor’s Response Against Child Exploitation (GRACE) Initiative intends to empower and mobilize communities of faith in the fight against child sex trafficking.

This toolkit offers resources intended for Catholics to use during a Week of Prayer to End Human Trafficking, Jan. 11-17, 2021. You can download a pdf of the resources or scroll below for social media graphics and texts which you can copy and download.

Through prayer, we not only reflect on the experiences of those that have suffered through this affront to human dignity but also comfort, strengthen and empower survivors.
