Formation in Family Life

"Each parish, school, and diocesan youth program will offer ongoing formation in chaste living as part of moral formation." ~ Archdiocesan Policy on Family Life and Chaste Living Formation

Family Life Resources
  • Archdiocesan Policy on Family Life and Chaste Living Formation
    Human sexuality is a gift from God, a gift to be respected and reverenced. All formation in family life will honor parents as having the primary role for forming the faith of their children. Formation in family life will assist parents and their children in forming their consciences and leading lives consonant with the Beatitude: Blessed are the Pure in Heart.
  • Catechetical Formation in Chaste Living: Guidelines for Curriculum Design and Publication (USCCB)
    Parents are particularly responsible for catechizing their children in faith and morals and thus have a special obligation to understand thoroughly and live the teachings of the Church. Assisting parents of adolescents and youth in the formation of their children for chaste living is essential to their formation in the Catholic faith and should be mandatory in Catholic schools and in parish religious education and youth ministry programs.
  • Formation for Love and Chastity
    On March 25, 2000, the Feast of the Annunciation, Archbishop Brunett promulgated the document Formation for Love and Chastity. He called for an initiative that would enable parishes and schools to help Catholic parents talk with their children about our Church’s teachings regarding human sexuality. This document articulates the main principles of the Church’s teaching on the gift of human sexuality.
