When the church of the home and the church of the parish work together, then lasting faith formation occurs for all ages. In Families and Faith: A Vision and Practice for Parish Leaders, eight authors—all of whom are experienced in family and parish ministry—show how the family’s ability to be a center of religious activity can be rekindled. Key to this is supporting, nurturing, and providing the tools for persons of all ages to develop a pattern of religious practice at home. The authors found in Families and Faith are: Judith Dunlap Kathleen Finley Jenny Friedman Leif Kehrwald Mariette Martineau James Merhaut Mary Jo Pedersen Eugene C. Roehlkepartain. They give the reader a wealth of ideas and strategies for helping families grow in faith with essays that focus on practical steps for connecting faith and life, family faith and spirituality, families and Christian practice, families and serving others, and more. Leaders and team members in various roles in the parish—pastors, pastoral associates, catechetical leaders, youth ministers, coordinators for whole community catechesis, and others—will discover here practical ways and means for developing a vision and practice of partnership with families in lifelong catechesis. Families and Faith: A Vision and Practice for Parish Ministry serves as a companion to two other books produced as part of the Generations of Faith Project: Generations of Faith Resource Manual and Generations of Faith Sourcebook.
