This is a true treasure chest of practical ways and means for developing a vision and practice of partnership with parish families. Leaders and team members in various roles in the parish: pastors, pastoral associates, catechetical leaders, youth ministers, coordinators for whole community catechesis and others, will discover here all they need to begin a genuine collaboration with families.
This informative resource is designed to give the reader a myriad of ideas and strategies for helping families grow in faith. Topics include practical steps for connecting faith and life, family faith and spirituality, families and Christian practice, families and serving others. Its premise is that when the church of the home and the church of the parish work together, lasting faith formation occurs for all ages. Here, eight authors--all experienced in family and parish ministry--show how the family's ability to be a center of religious activity can be enkindled. Key to this is supporting, nurturing, and providing the tools for persons of all ages to develop a pattern of religious practice at home. The authors in Families and Faith are: Judith Dunlap, Kathleen Finley, Jenny Friedman, Leif Kehrwald, Mariette Martineau, James Merhaut, Mary Jo Pedersen, and Eugene C. Roehlkepartain.
Families and Faith: A Vision and Practice for Parish Leaders serves as a companion to two other books produced as part of the Generations of Faith Project: Generations of Faith Resource Manual and Generations of Faith Sourcebook.
