Responding to COVID-19

Prayer and support for the family at a time of crisis

Dear families and friends of FFI,


With my whole heart I greet you wherever you may be. I want to let you know that we are praying for you and praying for all families everywhere.


This is a time of unexpected circumstances. Much is out of our control or beyond our understanding but we know that our Heavenly Father has all things in hand and that “all things work for good for those who love God.” (Rom 8:28).


All things work for good for those who love God.Romans 8:28

Let us connect by the way of hearts and prayers and even though we physically can’t get together we certainly can encourage each other. Let us pray for families everywhere, for your own family and for those who do not have family. Let us also pray for our church leaders, the priests, deacons and front line workers at this time who are caring for and comforting the sick. Let us also think of those who are alone and vulnerable who need our attention. Phone them! Send them pictures of what you are doing! Show them your love.


At this time the FFI office will remain accessible through email. If you need anything or are seeking any sort of assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us and we will respond. We will make use of our Facebook page, website, and email audience to share positive ideas for families and tips to encourage and inform. Please follow us on Facebook here, or search Family Foundations Institute.


FFI also has a subscription to and we want to make it available to you as you stay isolated as best you can.

Formed is loaded with great material that can help you grow spiritually at this time and is great for children and adults! Let’s seize this opportunity for interior growth, healing, unity and caring for our brothers and sisters.


God the Father of the whole Human family desires to pour His love and mercy upon all of us. Pray the Rosary. Let’s help each other. Count on my prayers –


St. Joseph, Pillar of Family Life. Pray for Us.
