A process hosted by dioceses, parishes, and/or schools for changing the way faith communities partner with parents so that the Catholic faith can be more effectively passed on to the next generation of disciples. The process, initially developed by NFCYM in 2010, is now presented in collaborative partnership by four national organizations working together to help parents bring home the faith: the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL), the National Association of Catholic Family Life Ministers (NACFLM), the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) and the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry (NFCYM).
The Strong Catholic Families process is designed to:
- Motivate parents to embrace the responsibility for the faith growth of their children and family as a domestic church and
- Motivate parishes/schools to support and equip parents and families in passing the faith onto their children and deepening the practice of faith within their homes.
