Mission Statement

 

The Catholic Church has historically been an advocate for strong family life. In keeping with this role, the Office of Family Life Ministries of the Archdiocese of Newark:

  • Is committed to placing the Christian family at the center of the Church's work and worship because the family is the basic foundation of both Church and society
  • Helps prepare engaged couples for happy, holy and successful marriages as well as aids those going through difficult times
  • Offers spiritual, educational, supportive and remedial programs to families
  • Intends to be the model for Family Life ministries in Archdiocesan parishes, and at the same time, provides pastoral ministers and Family Life resources for the parishes to implement programs
  • Provides occasions of prayer and celebration
  • Offers all these services in both English and Spanish
