COMMISSION ON FAMILY

 

The commission was organized to strengthen family life as a potent force of the Christian life. Its activities include the conduct of Pre-Cana seminar, responsible parenthood seminar for couples planning to get married, marriage counseling, and pro-life advocacy. It is committed to protect and safeguard human life, to fulfill the mission of making Christian families the stronghold of society and the Church, as well as to be bearers of the Good News. It also promotes the transformation of Christian families into true “domestic churches” as God intends them to become and upon which the future of evangelization will depend in the third millenium.

 

Coordinators:  Germanito and Ma. Joyce Pavino
