Formation

The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy with Jesus Christ.”     – John Paul II, Catechesi Tradendae, 5

In our own time, in a world often alien and even hostile to faith, believing families are of primary importance as centers as living, radiant faith.  For this reason the Second Vatican Council, using an ancient expression, calls the family the Domestic Church (#1656, Catechism of the Catholic Church)
