Just For Parents

You are Irreplaceable

You make the greatest and most lasting impact upon your children’s lives.  We live in a society that does not value faith like they value education and extra-curricular activities.  At your child’s Baptism the priest said: “You have asked to have your child baptized.  In doing so you are accepting the responsibility of training him (her) in the practice of the faith. It will be your duty to bring him (her) up to keep God’s commandments as Christ taught us, by loving God and our neighbor. Do you clearly understand what you are undertaking?” You responded: “I do”.  Jesus Christ is calling you as parents to help your child be the person that God created them to be and to help them get to heaven.  Heaven, is the central goal for your child and everything else follows.
