Human Sexuality Formation

The Church affirms that parents have the right and duty to be the primary educators of their children. However, giving children an adequate preparation for adult life, particularly with regard to the truth and meaning of human sexuality, can be difficult, especially amidst the confusing and sometimes harmful messages and trends in the broader culture. We are here to help.
