Family of God Print E-mail

familyofgodThe purpose of the Family of God program is to invite children in second and third grade to explore a wide range of activities that help them discover the presence of God in their daily lives as members of a family and a parish.

Parents work with their child on the activity choices described in the Family of God Children's Workbook. Workbooks are bilingual and each chapter has objectives that describe dimensions of children's lives within the family setting and within the Catholic community, or "God's family."

The workbook can be ordered directly from the publisher, the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry.

Awards are ordered from the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting, care of the Office for Catechesis - Ministry to Youth and Young Adults. Awards are sent after certification by the parish.


The Family of God medal and patch are typically presented at a parish Eucharistic Celebration and all award recipients are honored at an annual diocesan celebration in the spring.
