Catholic Toolkit - Week of Prayer to End Human Trafficking
This toolkit offers resources intended for Catholics to use during a Week of Prayer to End Human Trafficking, Jan. 10-16, 2022. January is designated as National Human Trafficking Awareness Month.
For each day, we offer an intercessory prayer, reflection points, and a call to action. Graphics can be used in social media or print - each graphic's caption includes text which can be used on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Individual Catholics, families, small faith groups, and parishes are encouraged to use material they deem appropriate. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops also provides a more robust toolkit for National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.
Please click on each day below for texts and graphics of an intercessory prayer, reflection points, and a call to action. We also offer a Facebook-sized cover/banner graphic, and you can download the image above to promote the week in general.
