 Children & Families

"Those who have given life to children and have enriched them with the gift of Baptism have the duty continually to nourish it... In a certain sense, nothing replaces family catechesis, especially for its positive and receptive environment, for the example of adults, and for its first explicit experience and practice of the faith." (General Directory for Catechesis, 177-178)
