Its no surprise that most adult Catholics remain active in their faith because they were formed by their parents. This is the kind of faith formation that lasts a lifetime! Parents are the key players. And the fact is, no one else can do this particular work of faith formation.

This book is set up for group or individual use. In a group reading session, the reflection questions will help lead you to an initial plan.

Study after study highlights the importance of parental example. This leads to the important conclusion that those who work in parish ministry as volunteers or leaders must find a way to bring parents into the learning experience of their children. They must have great expectations of those parents, expectations the parents will meet if they partner with them and coach them to form their own children.

In this book then, we will guide catechists, teachers, pastors, principals, and parish catechetical leaders to take a secondary role (as coaches), to help parents play the primary role (as teachers) in the faith formation of their children.
