Family Life Ministries

“The well-being of the individual person in the human and Christian society is intimately linked with the healthy condition produced by marriage and family.”  Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes, para.12

The family is the fundamental unit of Church and society and the primary place of Christian development and Catholic family life. “Family” includes: single, divorced, widowed, married, with or without children, young or elderly, two-parent families, single-parent families, step-families, families with special needs and families in the various life cycles of development.

The Family Life Ministries strive to affirm, support, and strengthen all facets of family life within the parish community by providing programs and opportunities for spiritual enrichment, healing and spiritual renewal.
