COLVF Message Family 2015On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, the Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF) has published its 2015 Message to Families, "Parents, will your children be happy?" While the Synod on the Family is taking place in Rome, COLF proposes a reflection on the formation of conscience. "In this present day and age, Christian parents who dedicate themselves to the education of their children, and hope that they become responsible, generous adults, cannot afford to ignore this reality. It is primarily the parents' task to train the men and women of tomorrow, so that they are able to choose that which — from the multitude of propositions offered by our society and our culture — is good, beautiful, right, and true. Christian parents know, moreover, that the eternal happiness of their children depends on these life decisions," COLF states in the introduction of its message. The new publication also includes a workshop guide for families, parishes, groups and movements who would like to deepen their reflection. Printed copies of the 2015 Message to Families can be ordered from or by phoning 613-241-9461, extension 161.
