Office of Family Life releases ‘Joy of the Family’ newsletter

The Office of Marriage, Family Life, Faith Formation and Youth Ministry is excited to announce the newly released “Joy of the Family” e-newsletter. The recently restructured office has adopted a unified approach to encourage faithful to become ever more fruitful disciples of Jesus Christ by strengthening Catholic identity and by discovering and embracing family as the Domestic Church. “No matter what stage of life we are in,” read the first of the monthly e-newsletter, “we all come from a family and are called to the family of families, the Catholic Church, where we gather to worship and grow as a community in Jesus Christ.”

The e-newsletter features content on program news, virtual sessions for youth and young adults, updates on past program events, the latest in website updates, family resources and access to the “Joy of the Family” blog, which is available to the public at a free subscription.
