About Family Catechism

The London and Stratford family catechism each began with three families, meeting at their homes on a regular basis for family rosary, snack, and a time of catechesis. These catechisms operated under seven guiding principles.

Over the years, additional families came to learn about the Family Catechisms through friendship and personal invite. Many wonderful initiatives (camps, conferences, clubs) have sprung up from these gatherings: the Holy Spirit is welcomed and active in this sort of organic group and it is amazing to see His work!
