In his monthly prayer video, Pope Francis said that he hopes for parishes to become communities where everyone can feel welcome, encounter Jesus, and be transformed. 

"They have to become once again schools of service and generosity, with their doors always open to those who are excluded. And to those included. To all," he expressed. 

Pope Francis also encourages all Catholics to work together to make their parishes places where the poor and marginalized are cared for, and where the Gospel is proclaimed and lived. 

The Pope asks for the intercession of Mary, the Mother of the Church, to help all parishes fulfill this mission and become true centers of evangelization.

Each month, Pope Francis releases a monthly prayer intention. 

Join us during February to pray for parishes to be open communities.
