Family Honor Delivers Spanish-Language
Leading & Loving Program for Parents
by Brenda Cerkez, Family Honor Executive Director
Joyful. Hopeful. Faith-filled.
These are just a few of the words I would use to describe Family Honor’s first Leading & Loving program delivered entirely in Spanish.
Held at The Basilica of St. Peter’s in Columbia, South Carolina on Friday evening, Feb. 19 and Saturday, Feb. 20, Leading & Loving is Family Honor’s program for parents of younger children, with a purpose of assisting those parents in cultivating Catholic virtues and values through the conversations of everyday family life.
The Spanish language program (which has been delivered in English for many years by Family Honor Presenters in several states) was made possible thanks to the perseverance of Ana Hidalgo, Director of Hispanic Ministry at St. Peter’s, and the leadership and talents of three of Family Honor’s bilingual Presenters: Natalia Gracia, who came over to South Carolina from Atlanta, Georgia, to deliver the program in person, and Raul and Marilyn Alonso, who delivered various program segments live, via Zoom, from Huntsville, Alabama.
