Domestic Church Webinar Series
September 15, 2020 @ 6:30 pm
“Keeping our Children Spiritually Healthy”
Webinar for parents, educators, and catechists
Parents have always played a primary role in the spiritual and human formation of their children. COVID-19 has highlighted that role exponentially. The Center for Evangelization and Catechesis at Aquinas College will be hosting two webinars that will help you develop norms for living the “new normal” in the Domestic Church of your home. Each presentation will be about 45 minutes and will offer time for Q&A at the end of the webinar. We will also provide resources with ideas on prayer and virtue.
In the current climate we are vigilant about protecting our physical health. As Catholic parents, we are even more concerned with the spiritual health of our children. The best and most secure place to meet the spiritual needs of our children is a prayerful home that leads them to faithful reception of the Sacraments. The inner prayer life of the family is the garden from which the Holy Spirit bears fruit in the lives of our children and helps them to develop into spiritually healthy adults.
Jason Gale and Sister John Thomas Armour, O.P. will be discussing the essential elements of the spiritual life of the family, addressing where to begin a familial prayer life, how to engage disinterested adolescents, and how to establish habits of prayer that are realistic and meaningful.
