Parents are called by God
To be both teachers and examples of faith. The religious education of our children begins at home because it is at home that they learn about life and love. Indeed, home is often referred to as the “domestic church” because what is learned in church will be internalized only if it is lived at home.
In his letter to families, Pope John Paul II wrote:
“Parents are the first and most important educators of their children, and they also possess a fundamental competence in this area; they are educators because they are parents.”
