St. Jude Catholic Parish - South Bend, Indiana

The Christian home is the central locus for catechesis in the faith. For this reason the family home is rightly called "the domestic church," a community of grace and prayer, a school of human virtues and of Christian charity.
-Catechism of the Catholic Church 1666
