Family Life / NFP

 

 "The future of humanity passes by way of the family.  It is therefore indispensable and urgent that every person of good will should endeavor to save and foster the values and requirements of the family."

Familiaris Consortio, Pope John Paul II

 Apostolic Exhortation, Nov. 22, 1981

If families are successful in passing on the faith, forming character and nurturing virtue, then the culture and society they create will better follow the Gospel values of Jesus.

MISSION STATEMENT

The Family Life Office coordinates the Church’s goal of supporting and strengthening marriage and family life in the Salina Diocese.  We are concerned with promoting the dignity and sanctity of all family members at every stage of development.  Our mission is to assist parishes with programming, training and resources as they encourage family members in their pursuit of holiness.
