Through the centuries, the Catholic faith has been passed on from generation to generation primarily through family values and practices. However, research today indicates a decline in the number of families living their faith, and there is a need to find ways to address this present deterioration of faith practice in families. The goal of this project is to support those in catechesis and family life ministries as they work to develop more proficient skills when journeying with those they serve. It will also address the importance of intentionally forming the domestic church (ecclesia domestica) as the foundation on which the larger Church is built.
