ABOUT FAMILY CATECHESIS
I recently saw this question asked and answered in a church bulletin:
Question: Father, at a recent baptism, I heard about the parents, not the Church being teachers of the faith. Can you explain this?
Answer: One of the final blessings given at baptism might be a blessing for fathers. It includes this line: "fathers and mothers" will be the first teachers of their child in the ways of the faith. May they also be the best teachers, bearing witness to the faith by what they say and do, in Christ Jesus, our Lord." This blessing reminds parents of their unique calling to bring their children to God. They are not alone though... the Church stands by them to help, especially with a program like "Family Catechesis". We also add to it through the mass. Parents, appreciate the wonderful vocation you have, and know we are here to help in any way we can.
