The young family is the cradle of faith formation. It is said, as the family, so the Church. Our faith has been handed down to us from generation to generation through families. By being an integral part of the community that endeavors to keep burning coals of faith aglow, the young couples need to keep intact the faith and values alive through children. Parents, by their word and example, need to be the first preachers of the faith to their children. Young parents can contribute willingly in terms of their youthful energy, skills, knowledge in technology, networking ability, planning and managerial skills coupled with compassion. Anchored in the wisdom and faith, young couples will undoubtedly be the channels of grace in families, society, the church and the nation at large.
The young parents of the parish meet regularly to reflect upon their family life, upbringing of the children and about the challenges of the Christian parenthood in today’s world of consumerism, intrusion of digital media and diminishing interest in spiritual life. They discuss together sharing their life experience both at the levels of issues and solutions. This group looks forward to taking up more serious roles in the activities of the parish.
