December is the fifth annual Dominican Month for Peace. After joining forces to help our Dominican family in Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, India, and Ukraine, the Dominican family now turns our attention to Venezuela – the country with the largest oil reserves on the planet, but for more than two decades, has been going through the greatest political, social, and economic crisis in its history. Please follow this page for resources to learn more about the nation and people of Venezuela and the Catholic Church and the Dominican family in the country. You will also find prayers for the people of Venezuela.

In this first week of Advent, we prepare ourselves to wait for you,
Lord, to receive you with joy. Today we pray that your light casts
away the shadows surrounding the people of Venezuela.
May they live in freedom, with justice and peace.
