The concept and reality of family is at the heart of life and at the heart of Church and what the Family Centre seeks to do is to resource, support and enhance the lived experience of family today. This means taking the reality of family life in its joyful and sorrowful moments and applying to it care programmes, prayer experiences and support networks that bring a deeper awareness and a fuller understanding to the richness of family life.
So preparing couples for marriage, providing training to parents, working with bereavement groups and providing support groups, these are areas which shape the work of the Family Centre at Knock Shrine.
