Launching the New Vital Families in Schools Initiative
While there are a number of contributing factors, an increasing number of research studies are confirming that families have the greatest impact on student outcomes. Healthy families are vital for a flourishing community, and the Church is God’s plan for developing healthy families. This is the Vital Families in Schools Initiative.
A Call to Hope-Filled Action
We grieve for the family of George Floyd who was unjustly killed by a white police officer while other officers stood by. We grieve with our friends, brothers, and sisters of color who have long endured the injustice of racism that has taken the lives of their sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers. . . . We also grieve for the deep divisions in our country that have left many discouraged that any real change could be possible. Though we grieve, we have hope.
