The family is the fundamental unit of Church and society and the primary place of Christian development. “Family” includes: single, divorced, widowed, married, with or without children, young or elderly, two-parent families, single-parent families, step-families, families with special needs and families in the various life cycles of development. The Family Ministry Office strives to affirm, support, and strengthen all facets of family within the parish community by providing holistic services, programs and opportunities for enrichment, healing and spiritual renewal.
“The well-being of the individual person in the human and Christian society is intimately linked with the healthy condition produced by marriage and family.” Vatican II, Gaudium et Spes, para.12
