Family Life Education-an essential component of a faith formation curriculum!

Use Family Life to:
  • Educate young people on the appropriate use of the Internet and social media
  • Support parents in raising and educating their children with the tools to help them make the right choices
  • Pass on Gospel values to live by: honesty, courage, self-discipline, fidelity, and chastity
  • Build strong families, live and share Christian values, and promote child safety

We know you want to provide young people and their families with the education they need to live wholesome, healthy lives that are founded on the faith of the Church. In fact, the need has never been greater for a family-based program that provides resources for chaste living, child safety, and faith formation. RCL Benziger’s Family Life series meets all of these needs.

Family Life equips children to deal with modern challenges in appropriate ways, using language and concepts they can readily understand and practice. It guides children, their parents, teachers, and catechists to integrate five themes of Catholic family living: God’s gifts of family, self, life, love, and community.

The most recent revision of Family Life—the most popular Catholic family life program in the United States—is also approved for child safety education in dioceses across the country.

At every grade level, RCL Benziger’s Family Life resources enrich the family’s sense of Catholic identity, assist families as they learn and practice virtues that lead to Christian living, and provide strategies that help families to stay safe and healthy, in mind and spirit.
