Our Family, Our Domestic Church...
Our family provides our first experiences in faith, prayer, and love. Known as the Domestic Church, our family teaches us about God, and creates the support and guidance of a life of prayer through everyday experiences. Especially now, when we are home with our family, we thank God for His gifts and grateful for our love and each other. With our family, our Domestic Church, prayerfully seek His will for us.
