In our own time, in a world often alien and even hostile to faith, believing families are of primary importance as centers of living, radiant faith. For this reason the Second Vatican Council, using an ancient expression, calls the family the Ecclesia domestica. It is in the bosom of the family that parents are "by word and example... the first heralds of the faith with regard to their children. They should encourage them in the vocation which is proper to each child, fostering with special care any religious vocation." (CCC 1656)
Even the best marriages need a tune up. The Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth is committed to helping good marriages become great marriages. There are many retreats offered throughout the year to help couples grow closer to Jesus Christ, and each other.
