For Your Family

Families are the first place where the values of love and fraternity, togetherness and sharing, concern and care for others are lived out and handed on.

Pope Francis – Fratelli Tutti (114)

Bringing faith home can be difficult with so many pressures and challenges placed upon home life. With Churches closed earlier this year, the domestic Church became ever more important to us. To celebrate National Youth Sunday as a family, we’ve created some resources for you to use at home together

The family should be the first place of accompaniment. Youth ministry can present the ideal of life in Christ as the process of building a house on rock (cf. Mt 7:24-25). For most young people, that house, their life, will be built on marriage and married love. That is why youth ministry and the pastoral care of families should be coordinated and integrated, with the aim of ensuring a continuous and suitable accompaniment of the vocational process.

Family Prayer Cards

This year you can download and keep these prayer cards to help you pray as a family. They help us focus on what it means to be together and hopefully they can be something you can use all year round.

  1. A fantastic 13 minutes, we would all have loved it to be longer! Super suggestions and we held on a well as we could even though one member of the family is ill and the other is self-isolating! Thank you so much really important for families to realise the power of prayer esp together. God Bless. xx
