Domestic Church Newsletter

According to the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution  on the Church:  “The family , is so to speak,the domestic Church.”   (Lumen Gentium #11) 

This means  that it is in the context of the family that we first learn who God is and to prayerfully  seek His Will for us.  The Domestic Church Core Team provides bi-monthly resources, articles, Home altar ideas, Family App features, and other family activities through the bi-monthly newsletter.
