Family Life Office | For Your Consideration – Called to the Joy of Love: Family Life 2023 Updates

There are four major initiatives that I propose for your consideration that have been slated for implementation at various levels in the next few years. These initiatives include:

Strong Catholic Families helps church leaders envision how the Catholic Church can more effectively partner with parents to help bring home the faith. Developed by NFCYM in 2005, the program offers a series of diocesan and parish level training, presentations, online and print resources, and Catholic Parent Revivals. Spanish language training (Fortaleciendo Familias en la Fe) and presentations are also available.

Communio is a nonprofit that consults with churches equipping them with proven strategies and technologies to solve our nation’s family and faith crisis.

More information will be forthcoming in the new year. The Holy Father speaks of proper formation for those involved in the Marriage Catechumenate in this way, “In order to effectively implement a renewed pastoral care of married life, it has to become indispensable that couples offer accompaniment, in parishes and family movements, as well as priests, already from the time of their seminary formation, and religious and consecrated men and women, be adequately formed and prepared in mutual complementarity and ecclesial co-responsibility.” Amoris Laetitia, 203; Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1632

“Mary Arose and Went in Haste” is the theme for the Annual Retreat for Catholic School Teachers and Staff Working in Public Schools.  After her encounter with the angel Gabriel, Mary went out to her cousin Elizabeth to proclaim the Good News she had received.  Like Mary, our public school teacher and staff members proclaim good news to the student in work and deed.
