Families (Building Bridges)

Youth are at a critical time in their faith development. The interest and participation of their most important spiritual guides—their parents—will greatly enhance the benefit they derive from this program. Recognizing the essential role of the family, each workshop includes a Taking It Home section that suggests specific ways families can be engaged. In addition, many Faith in Action activities include ideas for families. To help families utilize these opportunities, distribute Taking It Home handouts in class, email suggestions to families, and post the Taking It Home handout and other resources you identify on a religious education bulletin board. The Engagement activities (the first Alternate Activity in each workshop) offer another opportunity for parental involvement. Chaperones and drivers may be needed for these offsite visits to various faith communities. Talk with your religious educator about safety procedures. In addition, some workshops suggest that congregational members talk with the group about their experience in different faith communities.
