Raise Great Kids

This is what’s all about right? This is the game-changer. God created every mom and dad to be an amazing parent. The future of Catholicism depends on it.

Raising Great Children Begins with Baptism

Baptism is the greatest gift parents can give their child.You know that. We know that. But, sadly, most parents do not know that. God gave us this incredible sacrament to help us live amazing lives, but if parents don’t understand the beauty of Baptism—if they don’t understand their sacred role as their child’s first catechist—nothing will change. This is our opportunity. This is the start of a new future for the Catholic Church.
