    The purpose of this Program Area is to Strengthen Family Life.

    Take a look at what’s happening to our family life. Do we communicate? Do we
    share? Do we take time to get involved with each other? Are there opportunities for
    improvement? What is God’s plan for us? Today’s society makes it hard to be a
    family. Television takes up a lot of our time together. The hustle and bustle of
    business, rushed meals, school, work, committee meetings, sports and shopping are
    cramming our days and weeks. The family is under heavy attack today. The battle is
    largely over values and commitments. To survive, the family needs support. Its
    primary source of strength must be found in a growing religious and parish life. But it
    also can be helped substantially by an organization such as ours. Help prevent the
    death of the family by administering preventive medicine. Conduct those programs
    and activities which aid in rebuilding the family spirit from within, making it vital and
    strong enough to resist society’s ills. Encourage members and their families to
    choose as their model the Holy Family, copying their attitude of interdependence,
    sharing and respect for authority. Work to strengthen family life. Nourish wholesome
    home life through the sponsorship of activities involving entire families on a
    scheduled and continuing basis. Encourage communications and routines which
    involve family members within their own homes as well as bringing families together
    in social and recreational events in the community. Stimulate togetherness within
    family units. There are many ways in which families can enjoy time together in a
    scheduled, organized way, even when the age range of members of the family varies
    widely.
