The “Catholic Vision of Love” is a total parish program of faith formation directed at families.  By fostering stronge partnerships with families, the “Catholic Vision of Love” is designed to assist parents in fulfilling their responsibility as the primary educators of their children.  A clear articulation of the Catholic vision of love and human sexuality is essential today in order to strengthen the family, to help love endure, and to enable God’s people to live faith-filled, joyous and meaningful lives.  Working together, we can give families a solid formation in the Church’s teaching on love and sexuality.

Let us pray that the Spirit of God will guide, inspire and strengthen us.
