Strong Catholic Families; Strong Catholic Youth
The research on teens and faith cannot be clearer: parents matter . . . a lot!
This program helps parents to:
Learn about the current research on the religious beliefs, attitudes and activities of youth today using including the critical impact of the parents’ faith, beliefs and actions on that of their children/teens.
Listen and share with other parent’s and parish leaders your hopes, needs and concerns concerning the faith formation of your children/teens and how the parish/school can support you in these efforts.
Examine and assess your own“family faith inventory” and discern steps for growing in faith as a family in the coming year.
Discover some practical ideas, strategies and resources for family faith growth.
