Presented by Mary Mosher, Master Catechist and Catechetical Institute Mentor.
St. John Paul II tells us that, “Family catechesis . . . precedes, accompanies and enriches all other forms of catechesis” (Apostolic Exhortation “On Catechesis in Our Time,” Catechesi tradendae, CT, 68). These words challenge us to examine our thinking about how to pass on the Catholic faith within the parish or school we serve, and specifically to look at how to encourage the formation of the entire
family. In the Catechism of the Catholic Church we read, “The family is the community in which, from childhood, one can learn moral values, begin to honor God, and make good use of freedom” (2207). This webinar will examine the primacy of the family in religious formation and the importance of assisting families in their own formation so that together the parish or school community and families can work to bring about the well-formed and beautiful soul of each member.
