Resources for You

Parents fill in their workbook during Family Honor’s recent Leading & Loving program at Nativity parish near Charleston, South Carolina.

It’s a crazy world out there, isn’t it? That’s why the program opportunities Family Honor provides for parents to communicate values and strengthen ‘connectedness’ with their children seem to be more important than ever.

As we get ready to welcome 2018, we’d like to invite your parish (or parent group) to host a Family Honor program in the new year.

  • Our programs give parents and children common ground (and a fun atmosphere!) on which to meet and talk about chastity, love, and other ‘big topics’ in life.

  • Interested in finding out more? Please contact Family Honor at: 929.0858 or famhonor@aol.com
  • See our program descriptions at: https://familyhonor.org/program-descriptions/
