Domestic Church

The Christian home is the place where children receive the first proclamation of the faith. For this reason the family home is rightly called "the domestic church," a community of grace and prayer, a school of human virtues and of Christian charity. - Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1666

"The best and surest way to learn the love of Jesus is through the family." - Saint Thersea of Calcutta

Dear Parents,

Through baptism your children received the light of Christ.  You, as parents, have been entrusted with the mission to keep this light of faith burning brightly.  Here we have gathered resources we hope will inspire and support you in building your domestic church to keep the light of faith burning brightly in your family.  Please let us know how we can support you (but not replace you) in passing on the faith to your children.





Reading Scripture or Bible stories with your children is an easy way to beign sharing your faith with them.
Enthroning the Bible in your home is a way Catholic families show their devotion to the living Word of God.
