10 Pointers that make Great Catholic Families

Last Tuesday, we hosted a Meet and Greet for our Parish School of Religion. It was an opportunity for the families and catechists to meet each other. We also had our representative from Pflaum Publishing give a presentation on our curriculum, Gospel Weeklies, and how to navigate the Gospel Weeklies website to get the most use from this family resource that is available to us.

I also had a brochure from Our Sunday Visitor, called 10 Things that Make a Great Catholic Family. These pointers are also great suggestions to help us remember today’s Scripture, “For me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”  Below, I have listed those 10 pointers:
Great Catholic Families…

  • Make Sunday Mass the center of their week
  • Give Thanks
  • Simply Give
  • Let Their Lights Shine
  • Fight Fair
  • Make Mistakes
  • Forgive Each Other (a lot)
  • Remember Ritual
  • Listen for Holy Moments
  • Practice Lifelong Loving

May we continue to be a witness of stewardship and service to others.

God bless you,
Karen Bartos
