Purpose: The mission of Family Ministry is to pray, worship, evangelize, learn, and empower families to minister to one another. This mission will help bring the "Domestic Church", the community of God's people, to all parish activities. Our goal is to strengthen healthy families and support hurting families. As Family Ministers, we will accomplish this through listening, planning responses such as programs, written resources, referrals, and right-to-life groups. Family ministry recognizes the many faces of family life in the parish and defines family as "an intimate community bound together by blood, marriage, or adoption for the whole of life" (Familiaris Consortio, John Paul II).
Membership: This committee consists of volunteers from the parish community with experience or interest in and a willingness to assist family life. Membership is open to all parishioners.
Meeting Schedule: Meetings called as needed.
