December 10 – “Becoming Families of Faith – What the Synod can teach us about our families and our parish family this Advent”
The Synod on the Family provided us with some central perspectives on the meaning of family.  These insights certainly apply to our individual families.  I also ask the question:  How can the Synod help us reflect on our parish family?  What does it mean to say a parish is “a family of faith?”  How can we grow as a family this Advent season?
