BLESSED FAMILY: God believes in families! And yet, sometimes we yearn for more meaning amidst the busy days, or deeper friendships with other families. Sometimes going to Mass is fraught with stress and distraction—there must be more!
Our Blessed Family program aims to offer you just that-more! More joyful occasions to celebrate your family’s faith, to grow in friendships with other families of faith and equip you as parents to be able to answer and guide your children as they face many challenges in the culture. God wants us to live lives of fullest abundance!
We believe an intentional approach to family life can make all the difference to living this full life that God offers us. And we are not meant to do this alone. Our Blessed Family program allows you to join in with other families who want to grow in joy, love, faith. The friendships made, skills learned, & experiences shared will enrich the quality of your parenting & your marriage, deepening your faith and love for one another. We have seen that the investment of your time, into building a joyful and intentional Christian family life in these years of children living at home, will bear fruit for years to come for all of you.
PARENT LIFE: Geared toward parents of Middle & High School Youth,* we seek to share life, prayer, and formation for the mission of leading our families into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
We are excited to be partnering with Nazareth Revisited, a local apostolate that seeks to help parents find the calm in the storm of today’s world: “Being a parent in today’s culture is hard. Being a Catholic parent is harder.”
Parent Life will meet twice a month on Sunday evenings from 6:45-8:15 p.m. at Incarnation in the PAC, unless otherwise specified; child-care will be provided (except for XLT – whole family encouraged to attend). The sessions will rotate through:
- a guest speaker addressing a particular topic related to parenting teenagers;
- prayer experiences, like XLT; and
- a breaking open of an EDGE or Life Night
