“In what might be regarded as the domestic church, the parents are to be the first preachers of the faith for their children by word and example” (Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen Gentium, #11)

The parents themselves profit from the effort that this demands of them, for in a catechetical dialogue of this sort each individual both receives and gives. Family catechesis, therefore, precedes, accompanies, and enriches all other forms of catechesis.” (Catechesis in our Time, Catechesi Tradendae, #68)

The family is the most intimate experience of Church, the place where love, forgiveness and trust should first be encountered. This is the family Church, whose members are called to embody Christ in everyday life.” (Marriage and Family Life: The Domestic Church by Marie and Brennan Hill)
