Bishops praise booklet

CHURCH LEADERS have welcomed the programme launched this autumn by Family and Social Action to help parents carry out their responsibilities as Christian educators more effectively.

The programme booklet, Parents. Children and Faith, is designed to help couples in a practical way to introduce young children to a knowledge of God.

Bishop Geoffrey Burke, auxiliary in Salford, said: "FSA is to be congratulated on preparing the material contained in this booklet. Parents and family groups will find it most helpful".

Bishop John Jukes, auxiliary in Southwark, also commended the initiative of "this very useful programme". He added: "It answers a need for many parents of young children to start to explore with others the growth in the faith and in the Church that is open to them".

In helping couples to deepen their awareness of their parental task, the programme draws on the teaching of Pope John Paul II in Familiaris Consortio where he developed the second Vatican Council's theme of the family as the "Church of the Home" in which the first preachers arc the parents.

Family and Social Action, which is both a movement of lay people striving to carry out their responsibilities in the world and a pastoral service agency providing practical aids aimed at building the parish as a Christian community, was established a few years ago with the support of the Bishops.

Parents, Children and Faith, Family and Social Action, 1208 West Heath Road, London NW3, price 50p.
