November: Adoption

The St. Anthony Prayer Society would like to focus the Lord’s graces through dedicated moments of focused prayer.  

November is National Adoption Awareness Month. During this month, our nation, together with local communities and concerned agencies, promote, gather and celebrate the life changing gift of adoption. We at Catholic Charities of Central Colorado join the nation in its collective effort to increase awareness and attention on the needs of more than 15,000 children waiting for foster care and permanent families.
Catholic Charities is privileged to have the opportunity to bridge the way to forever homes for children in need of love and care; and giving parents the chance to love and care. We will continue on this mission of bringing hope, love and stability for all foster child. Our agency will continue to work with prospective parents to meet their child and provide support for the creation of a secure and Christ-centered family.


“To adopt a child is a great work of love. When it is done, much is given,
but much is also received. It is a true exchange of gifts.”
Pope John Paul II


Let Us Pray Together:

Lord our God,
Thank you for the opportunity to be part of the life changing journey of a foster child and their foster and prospective parents. Through your grace, we were able to provide happiness and security to children hungry of love and care. Thank you Lord for the people who are willing to accept and love a child through adoption and care for them as their own.
We pray that You continuously bless and guide us in our mission to bring home a child to deserving and loving parents. Lord, bless all Your children in foster care and give hope to those still waiting for a home. Bless those with willing hearts who have unconditionally loved and cared for their adoptive child. We pray for more willing hearts to accept and love a foster child, as St. Joseph willingly accepted Jesus, without reservation, to become his son.
In Jesus name, Amen.
