Thank you so much to all the volunteers who made this weekend’s Mother/Daughter Tea and Father/Son BBQ such successful events! Both are our Tier 1 events for the Archdiocese’s All in God’s Plan program, teaching families about one of God’s amazing gifts. You can learn more here.
Like most things we do here, these events begin with parent support and education – in this case, with a required Parent Night event held about 6 weeks earlier. Then, both the boys and girls events feature speakers on virtue, the unique gifts of being a boy or girl, a talk from a medical professional on upcoming physical changes, and lots of fun! Besides passing on information to the kids, it’s a wonderful opportunity to help parents and kids connect on this important topic. It’s an annual event here for about the last 20 years and we recommend it highly!
All in God’s Plan is a three-part program offered at various stages of development for children, and their mothers, fathers, parents, guardians, or other strong role models in their lives. Each program is age specific and appropriate. It is intended to assist families in teaching youth about God’s gift of human sexuality and the sacredness of human life while emphasizing the importance of the family.
