The Role of Parents

“Through the grace of the sacrament of marriage, parents receive the responsibility and privilege of evangelizing their children.” (Catechism 2225) When should this evangelization begin? The catechism is clear that it should start at an early age: “Parents should initiate their children at an early age into the mysteries of the faith of which they are the ‘first heralds’ for their children. They should associate them from their tenderest years with the life of the Church.” (Catechism 2225)

The Children’s Rosary is a means for parents to expose their children to prayer at an early age and develop a faith steeped in the Tradition of the Catholic Church.
