The family is the essential social unit. As “a sign and image of the communion of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,” (CCC, 2205) the family is that sacred wellspring in which human life is conceived and through which it grows to its fullest mental, physical and spiritual potential. To this end, the Diocesan Center for Family Life provides programs to prepare couples for marriage, to support the family, and to build a culture of life.
