Today, young people face many challenges as they grow up in a culture that is not always supportive of Catholic principles. It is essential that they have a solid formation in the faith, including a basis in the virtue of chastity. This virtue is an essential key to living joyfully the Catholic faith, to a happy marriage, the commitments required for a priestly or religious vocation, and serves as a sure witness to Christ our Lord.
The program, Formation in Christian Chastity, relies heavily on parents as the primary teachers of their children. The program seeks to support and guide parents as they hand on to their children the perennial teaching of the Church on matters of human love and sexuality. The efforts of parents are further supported by classroom work to provide the moral principles we live by, and a spiritual life to sustain our young people as they mature.
