A Catholic View of Today's Families
Jan 22 - Feb 11, 2020 | $25
Families with their joys, challenges, pressures, and pains, are at the center of attention in the Church today. Families face new challenges and opportunities in the rapidly changing world of the 21st Century. In this course, we share in the stories and experiences of a range of families, each with unique abilities and needs. We also discuss how church communities can strengthen and support families as they grow and pass on the faith. This course is supported by the Spring 2015 issue of C21 Resources "Catholic Families: Carrying Faith Forward"
