Catholichs - Kansas City Area Catholic Homeschoolers email@example.comThe purpose of this group is to provide a means for Catholic families in the greater Kansas City area to offer support to each other as they encounter the joys and the sacrifices involved in the home education of their children.
Pope St. John Paul II, in his apostolic exhortation Familiaris Consortio has emphasized the importance and sacred character of our role as home educators of our children:
“For Christian parents the mission to educate … has a new specific source in the sacrament of marriage, which consecrates them for the strictly Christian education of their children: that is to say, it calls upon them to share in the very authority and love of God the Father and Christ the Shepherd, and in the motherly love of the Church, and it enriches them with wisdom, counsel, fortitude and all the other gifts of the Holy Spirit in order to help the children in their growth as human beings and as Christians. The sacrament of marriage gives to the educational role the dignity and vocation of being really and truly a "ministry" of the Church at the service of the building up of her members.”
“A vivid and attentive awareness of the mission that they have received with the sacrament of marriage will help Christian parents to place themselves at the service of their children's education with great serenity and truthfulness, and also with a sense of responsibility before God, who calls them and gives them the mission of building up the Church in their children. ”
With Pope St. John Paul II’s words in mind, let the Holy Spirit guide our words and our actions as we strive to bring new saints to heaven.
