Family Day reminds us all to focus our thoughts, energies and time to those closest to us—the members of our own families. Throughout our busy lives filled with learning, teaching and working, it is easy to allow ourselves to lose
sight of what should always be most important—our children, parents, spouses, siblings and other loved ones. It is also easy to lose sight of the important role we play within the family of God—in our own parish families. Family Day gives us the opportunity to reconnect with our families and share quality time together.
