Evangelizing Parents: First Things First

As a parent myself, I know that parenting responsibilities are all-reaching and overwhelming. Parenting experts stress that if a child is to be healthy, then wholesome food must be served at home and exercise must be a part of family life. If a child is to become academically successful, the home is responsible for fostering a love of learning. Parents are called to lead by example.

Parents and You: Forging a Strong Partnership

A sure key to success as a catechist is the relationship you forge with the parents of your students. Working as partners, you and parents help the children grow in faith.

Dealing with the Difficult

I stood in the back of church with 120 restless children. These young children, about to receive their First Communion, were waiting for the signal to begin their procession down the center aisle.

Build the Church Beginning in the Home

The Second Vatican Council, the modern popes, and the U.S. Catholic bishops have emphasized a teaching on the Christian family that is both easy to overlook and difficult to put into practice.

Saint Joseph and Familyhood

On March 19 the Church honors St. Joseph, Husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
