Below you will find information and resources for the 2024 Year of Prayer.

In preparation for the 2025 Jubilee, Pope Francis has declared 2024 as a Year of Prayer, urging the faithful “to intensify prayer to prepare us to live well this event of grace and to experience the power of God’s hope.”

The Year of Prayer is focused on “rediscovering the great value and absolute need for prayer, prayer in personal life, in the life of the Church, prayer in the world.”

The Dicastery for Evangelization has prepared several resources to help guide communities in their prayer this year. Resources will also be added to this page on a regular basis.

A song often reflects our feelings, mirroring the faith journey toward the Risen Lord. The Jubilee, symbolising a pilgrimage to the Holy Door, uses song to express “Pilgrims of Hope.” Themes like creation, fraternity, God’s tenderness, and hope are woven into Pierangelo Sequeri’s text and Francesco Meneghello’s music, echoing the prophet Isaiah’s words. Christian hope illuminates the journey, revealing companions moving toward a new destination, guided by the Spirit and the heavenly Father, who points to Jesus as the path for all.

The Diocese of Palmerston North has developed a resource booklet intended to help parishes, individuals, families, and other communities respond to the call of Pope Francis and dedicate this year to prayer.

Prayer Pastoral Aide for Presbyters

As part of the Year of Prayer called by the Holy Father and in preparation for Jubilee 2025, the Dicastery for Evangelization has prepared a prayer resource for Presbyters: With Peter and Paul Following the Master. It may be used freely in gatherings of presbyters; either together with their bishop, or divided into groups in the region.
