If we want children and teens to become lifelong Catholics and members of the church, we have to start now by involving the whole family in the life of the church. What are the benefits of FAMILIES WITH CHRIST?
Involves the whole family in congregational life and learning, building up the faith of the whole family.
Provides a way to teach, model, and demonstrate family faith practices.
Provides the resources for families to live Christian practices at home.
Eases the transfer of learning to the home because the whole family experiences the learning and practices together.
Builds up the confidence and ability of parents to share faith and values with their children by providing parent education, resources, support, and encouragement.
