What Are the Biggest Challenges Facing Families in Living Our Catholic Faith?

What are three of the biggest challenges families are facing in living our Catholic Faith today?

That’s what we’re going to discuss as the third interview of our Easter 2024 series, “Rebuild My Church,” and offer us, the Church, the Body of Christ, at least three actionable ways to help overcome those challenges in an effort to bring renewal from within.

I am joined today by my friend, teammate, mom of five, and Catholic Speaker, Tammi McCarthy, from Whispers of Love and Faith.

Families Living the Catholic Faith Challenges and Solutions

Challenge #1: Real lack of understanding of the sacraments, especially the Holy Eucharist.

Solution: Offering talks about the sacraments and sharing understanding through videos and blog posts.

Challenge #2: Parents struggling with a lack of catechesis to live out and pass on the Faith to children.

Solution: Movement of parishes to start incorporating family catechesis through Faith and Family sessions. Given several talks on the Eucharist and having a relationship with Christ.

Challenge #3: Lack of knowledge of scripture and personal prayer.

Solution: Offering an opportunity on social media to listen to the readings of the day and providing reflections to listen to.
