Parents, We are the Primary Educators of Our Children

January 10, 2012

One of the blogs that I read is the Catholic Youth Ministry Blog by Scott Miller. This blog often shares bits of wisdom that leave me thinking about my own children and also about the group that I primarily minister to and with, those in their 20s and 30s. The culture of our teens impacts the work I do with Young Adult Ministry.

This video is a challenge for me as a parent. No matter where my kids go to school or attend religious education it is our job, first and foremost, to pass on the faith.

What does that call each of us to as parents?
