Here in the Family Formation office, we love the quote near the end of this article on Catholic marriage trends spotted in our diocesan newspaper:
However, like Gray, the Heinzens also see a cultural renewal emerging on the Catholic marriage front.
“One of the most positive cultural trends that we see is a shift in catechesis from a child-centered focus to a parent-centered focus,” they said. “This trend allows parishes to utilize the basic desire found in most parents’ heart to provide the very best for their children. … This shift in the catechetical approach is bearing great results because parents are learning how to become primary educators for their children.”
Thanks to all of you Family Formation priests, parishes, and families who are part of this trend. We are very pleased to be your partner!
