The Faith Formation Department at St. Bernadette’s also wants to support parents who decide for the first year of formation and after receiving the sacrament to instruct their children at home, “Family catechesis precedes, accompanies, and enriches other forms of instruction in the faith (CCC 2226). The Christian home is the place where the children receive the first proclamation of the faith. For this reason, the family home is rightly called “The Domestic Church”, a home centered on prayer, virtues, and Christian charity. God ordained the family as the place where life in Christ takes root in the human heart, blossoms, and spreads outward to embrace the world.
