"The family finds in the plan of God the Creator and Redeemer not only its identity, what it is, but also its mission, what it can and should do." With John Paul the Great's words as inspiration, Domestic-Church.Com hopes to promote a Catholic culture of the home that will aid each family to become "what you are!"

Living in the Domestic Church

altThe liturgical seasons - Advent and Christmas, Lent and Easter - have many lessons for families to both teach and learn. This web site offers families a wide variety of activities, crafts, essays and stories for the domestic church during the great feasts and seasons of the Church.

But the Church, like families, has Ordinary (for "ordinal" or counting) Time too, and in many ways, it's Ordinary Time and ordinary times that are most important for families.

Christ calls us all to "preach to all nations." We evangelize with our words, certainly, but we also (and often more effectively) teach with our actions and our work. "See how they love each other!" says The Acts of the Apostles. Much of this mission of evangelization takes place in Ordinary Time and takes place in the domestic church. So, we also offer a host of faith-filled and faith building devotions, activities and ideas for a family's ordinary time.
May we all "become what we are!"
