Our mission of evangelization is to help parishes bring people to an encounter with Christ and a deeper appreciation of the Catholic faith, igniting a joyful witness of their faith to others.
Through prayer, education, advocacy, and accompaniment, our mission is to help parishes evangelize families, married couples, single adults and youth to respond enthusiastically to the gift of the Catholic faith by putting Christ first in their lives and joyfully witnessing that faith to others.
"A family is our first community and the most basic way in which the Lord gathers us, forms us, and acts in the world. The early Church expressed this truth by calling the Christian family a domestic church or church home."
- "Follow the Way of Love", a Pastoral Message of the U.S. Catholic Bishops to Families.
The Church is a family of families, constantly enriched by the lives of all those domestic churches. "In virtue of the sacrament of matrimony, every family becomes, in effect, a good for the church. From this standpoint, reflecting on the interplay between the family and the Church will prove a precious gift for the Church in our time. The Church is good for the family, and the family is good for the Church. The safeguarding of the Lord's gift in the sacrament of matrimony is a concern not only of individual families but of the entire Christian community."
- Amoris Laetitia, 2016, Pope Francis #87
