JMJ Member Faith Statement

Vatican-Flag

 As it is my/our desire to educate our child(ren) by means of parent directed education, I/We acknowledge my/our sole responsibility for the education of my/our child(ren).

I/We echo the Second Vatican Council when it states: “As it is the parents who have given life to their children, on them lays the gravest obligation of educating their family.  They must therefore be recognized as being primarily and principally responsible for their education.  The role of parents in education is of such importance that it is almost impossible to provide an adequate substitute.  It is therefore the duty of parents to create a family atmosphere inspired by love and devotion to God and their fellow-men which will promote an integrated, personal and social education of their children.  The family is therefore the principal school of the social virtues which are necessary to every society.” (Vatican II, Gravissimum Educationis)

Also in this time of great moral evil when human life is so devalued, I/We reaffirm the Church’s teaching that all human life is sacred from conception to natural death.

In conclusion, I/We recognize the Roman Catholic Church to be the one true apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ and adhere to the teaching magisterium (the Bishops in union with the Holy Father) of the Church and all its doctrines and traditions.
