Did You Know?

Commit to building family values and protecting vulnerable children
Children are exposed to many words, expressions, actions, and beliefs through their experiences. This is how they learn to become adults, and learn how to live in the world around them. Children turn to their parents for guidance. Strong family values modeled at home help children sustain their faith and teach them to live as children of God. Recommit to your families – listen to your children, model good behavior and virtue, and instruct them in faith. Pray
to Mary for help, and ask her for guidance in raising your children as she did her Son. For a copy of the complete VIRTUS® article “Mother of Good Counsel Protect the Vulnerable” visit www.archla.org/protecting.
