"The family is, so to speak, the domestic church. In it parents should, by their word and example, be the first preachers of the faith to their children." -Lumen Gentium 11
I don’t know about your family, but our family is busy. Doing our best to live out our vocation as Catholic parents in our domestic church, we found that our church was often unfocused, incoherent, and hyperactive. We wanted a way to simply but deeply connect to the Church together in a way that left us refreshed rather than exhausted.
We found a way, and we want to share it with you.
We think your family will come to enjoy family prayer time as much as we have. We hope to provide plenty of materials for your family to support and construct your own domestic church.
"What a great way to build a Catholic culture of joy and hope!" - Dr. John Bergsma
