Sowing the Seeds of Faith: It is (Almost) All in the Family

FIRST ANNUAL STM RELIGIOUS EDUCATION LECTURE

FIRST ANNUAL STM RELIGIOUS EDUCATION LECTURE
October 22, 2015
Presenter: Thomas H. Groome

The Church often repeats that the family is the primary religious educator.  Parents can well hear this as a daunting task and the Church does precious little to support them in their evangelizing and catechizing responsibilities—to sow and grow the seeds of faith.  This inaugural annual STM Religious Education presentation will reflect on why the home is so central and will make practical suggestions for how the family can be "the first educator in the ways of faith" (Rite of Baptism).

Sponsored by the School of Theology and Ministry

Thomas H. Groome is Director of The Church in the 21st Century Center and STM professor of theology and religious education.
