“As the domestic Church, the parents, by word and example, are the first heralds of the faith with regard to their children”
Vatican II, Lumen Gentium
It is in the context of the family that we first learn who God is. God entrusts primary responsibility to parents to be the first teachers of the faith to their children, making it their constant care to bring their child up in the practice of the faith. It is the duty of every Christian parent to see that the divine life God gives their child through Baptism is kept safe from the poison of sin so as to grow always stronger.
We strive to support parents in fulfilling the commitment they made at the Baptism of their child, helping them to grow in their own understanding and practice of the faith in many different ways.
