PARENTS becoming Catechists in their families.

This year we had a great response from the Parents of Confirmation Candidates. While they participate to their instruction with the catechists, in another room the Parents are participating in a special ADULT FORMATION PROGRAM, which is strengthening their own faith, so to be able to support the spiritual growth of their children. It was a great good surprise to see that the majority of the parents (about 60 out of 80) are faithful to every session offered just for them.
It has been a very good experience, which we will continue and improve for the future. It has become a moment of spiritual growth not just for the “confirmandi” but for the whole family. That is the way it is supposed to be: A family Celebration.
