A startling trend has begun to surface among parents of adult children discussing the state of their children's faith life. Despite the efforts of parents to assure Sacraments are received and access to a Catholic Education is available, a large percentage of children are no longer practicing the faith. Many parents are now grieving the loss of their children's faith. They thought they were doing all that was needed, but are now discovering that it wasn't enough.
Can anything be done to stem this tide? YES
The purpose of this day is to help parents learn why this is happening and how they can play a key role in helping their kids not only find Jesus, but also remain in relationship with Him. Deacon Ralph Poyo has been working in youth ministry and parish catechesis for more than thirty years. Parents will want to come and invest some precious time to explore how they can help get their kids to heaven.
