Seeking God Together

A practical Companion for parish communities in meeting, welcoming and accompanying families, from conception to death.

Founded on the Catholic Church’s vision for marriage and family life, and sensitive to the complex reality of family today, the Companion aims to support parishes, schools and chaplaincies in their interface with families, identifying take-off and landing points for sensitive family ministry in the Seasons of family life. It offers support to those already engaged in accompaniment of families, and encourages confidence in others to get started.
