Project Nazareth Parent Guide
Parents are the first educators of their children in the faith. We learn in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC 2252), that “parents have the first responsibility for the education of their children in the faith, prayer, and all the virtues. They have the duty to provide as far as possible for the physical and spiritual needs of their children.” This may seem daunting, but it does not need to be! No matter where parents are on their own spiritual journeys, Project Nazareth gives families the opportunity to explore their faith together. Exploring faith as a family allows children to see and hear parents engage with faith through prayer, study, generosity, and evangelization; this example is essential for children as they grow in their own spiritual journeys. The Project Nazareth Parent Guide provides a helpful overview to help parents navigate the Sacred Mysteries and Good News weekly toolkits. The guide will help parents set the space in their own homes to ponder, listen, pray, and act as a family – integrating the Catholic faith into daily family life.
