Why Attend a Family Gathering?

Families of Parishes evolved with the lay faithful in mind. 

  • Families of Parishes are for the benefit of lay faithful. 
    • We are the Body of Christ.
    • We are meant to worship as community.
    • We need the Sacraments to sanctify and build up the Body of Christ and to give worship to God. CCC 1122
    • If there are not enough priests to minister to each individual parish, the grace of the sacraments will not be available to us.
    • We need to come together as one Body.
    • Come and meet the other parishes in your family, learn about their unique characteristics. Participate in discussions with other members of your family.
  • Hear stories from lay persons in dioceses that have already participated in such a transition. 
    • We learn through the experiences of others.
  • Begin the chapter of journeying in faith with many other Catholics in your community.
    • You may see them every day but have never met.
  • This is what being a joyful missionary disciple is about.
