"Parents are the first heralds for their children... Education in the faith by the parents should begin in the child’s earliest years."
- From the "Catechism of the Catholic Church", paragraphs 2225 and 2226.
As Catholic parents, we have an important responsibility to foster our children’s faith. In the past, society supported parents because the Word of the Gospel was largely understood, there were not as many secular diversions. Back then, the authority of parents was seen as important and largely accepted. In today’s modern world, with it’s diversions and belief that parenting is too important a job to be left to parents alone, we need resources for parents to continue to be the “heralds for their children” and break through the modern media clutter.
How do we bring our children up to understand the love of God? How do we foster their relationship with Him? How do we, as mothers and fathers, maintain the confidence to live our God-given vocation as parents, and in the process come to a deeper understanding of our own relationship with God? Below are several videos you can use as a resource with your children in guiding their faith. They are categorized by age group and are in two different formats for your convenience. They are simply designed to be used as a helping hand and educational resource as you and your children continue on your faith journey.
