Family Resources

Families form the foundation of our Church and society. Parents are entrusted with their children by God and called to raise them in love and faith. The Church talks about the family home being the ‘domestic church’ or ‘little church’ and teaches that parents are the primary educators of their children. Being a parent is an amazing gift and an awesome responsibility that provides plenty of challenges. These resources are for the benefit or Catholic families to inspire, guide and resource you in your vocation.
