Program Booking Details for Parishes

Our Catholic faith – and a lot of research – confirms the importance of parents in communicating virtues and values to their children. Many parents, though, aren’t sure how to start these conversations, what is age-appropriate, or if Church teaching on sex has changed. That’s where Family Honor comes in! For over 30 years, we’ve been the trusted source for families on these topics. Our in-person, family-centered programs are designed to equip parents with resources that will help them help their children stand strong against the dangers of the current culture and understand the truth and beauty of God’s gift of sexuality.(Plus, our programs are delivered by experienced Presenters!)

Please read over our program options below and let us know how we can serve your parish!
