The Family Life Ministry at St. Matthew's strives to provide support for the most basic unit of our society, the family. The Catholic Church sees the family as the "domestic church" or little individual church communities where people gather to work, pray, raise children, socialize, help build a just and caring society and to share in the mission of the church. The FLM of St. Matthew's promotes the dignity of life and supports families living a Christian lifestyle through all phases of human growth and development.
The Family Life Ministry provides young parents with preparation for Infant Baptism, gives information about annulments and provides marriage preparation. FLM also hosts Summer Vacation Bible School, and other family activities throughout the year.
