World Day of Prayer for The Victims of Human Trafficking

St Simon Stock Catholic Church Website Administrator

February 8th is the World Day of Prayer for The Victims Of Human Trafficking

And a day for those who work to combat it.

With encouragement from Pope Francis, the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace and the International Union of Superiors General designated February 8th as an annual day of prayer, reflection, and action against human trafficking. On this day Catholics are encouraged to remember and pray for survivors and victims of modern-day slavery. We pray that we may work together to remove the causes of this disgraceful scourge that is present in our world today. This day is also one of awareness and action: our prayers are strengthened three-fold when we accompany them with a willingness to become aware of the problem and become involved in erasing this evil.
