«The family is a little church, a sanctuary of life, a domestic church, a church at home, a mysterious presence of the living God,» the message states.

Entitled «The Christian Family: Good News for the World,» the message celebrates the Christian family as being open to life and serving others.

The six-page leaflet is a useful tool for those involved in sacramental preparation, religious education, youth and family ministry, retreats and parish celebrations of the family.

Copies of the message are available from COLF via e-mail:, or on the COLF Web site in electronic format.

COLF was jointly founded by the Canadian bishops’ conference and the Knights of Columbus.
