We all know the importance of parents in the faith development of their children. Many of us share a concern that many parents are
not engaged in their children’s catechesis; it seems like many are not engaged in their parish or in a lively and growing faith at all.

How can we engage parents in ways that will help form faith that lasts a lifetime?  Explore how everything changes when we engage parents  to form their children partnering with them and leading the family to living and lasting faith.
