Family & Youth

Families are a community of persons where moral values are taught and the spiritual and cultural heritage of society are passed on. Families are also essential in ensuring people are strong in their commitments, and promote both social responsibility and solidarity.

The bible repeatedly underlines the importance and centrality of the family: the book of Genesis narrates the creation of the first man and woman, and the family is portrayed as having a central role in creation. Other Old Testament books speak of the love to be found in the family, which is also where children are taught wisdom and the virtues.
