Put simply, programs in this category are developed for families, by families. Father mcgivney sought to strengthen the familial bond of father to mother and children to parents. Catholics often struggle with the reality that they do not have the opportunity to socialize and/or pray with other faith-filled Catholic families. it can be quite a challenge to continue to ground ourselves and raise our children in the faith when there is such limited exposure.
Our family programs are an evolution and response to a society that seeks to weaken the bonds of family. we must make it clear that society should value a family that is faithful to god and each other. Father mcgivney’s vision for family life was not only financial and material aid but also spiritual strength, as holiness is the calling of all baptized Christians. Put plainly, the majority of our time is easily spent in secular circles unless we intentionally create ways to live the domestic church. These programs help us to live this call.
