Family Life

The family is the primary unit in society. It is where education begins and the Word of God is first nurtured.  A firm foundation of families is society's best guarantee for an authentically human world: within the family, the whole person is always at the centre of attention as an end and never as a means. Without families that are strong in their communion and stable in their commitment, peoples grow weak.
       The Institute offers and is developing courses, workshops, retreats, and multi-media resources for families, including Catechism, home schooling, marriage preparation and natural family planning, and marriage as a lifelong sacrament. Let us know if you can't find what you're looking for.  If it's not on the way already, maybe we can help.


We are gathering resources for those interested or involved in all aspects of family life. Look for them soon. In the meantime, what are your needs? Share them with us so that we can help.
