Parent as Witness.
Reck, Carleen, Ed.
The fourth in a set of five publications on the educational "ministry," this booklet focuses on Catholic parents sharing their religious faith with their children. This resource booklet offers tools to elementary school and parish leaders. An explanation of Christian Family Clusters (groups of four to six families formed at the grass-roots level and with mutual concern for the good of each other) is accompanied by guides for six cluster sessions. A brief article, "Parent as Witness," by Dr. Richard Corrado, suggests some of the many qualities of parental witnessing. Also included in the booklet are ideas and activities for building home-school communication; a parental recommitment service for use within a Catholic school setting; a ready-to-adapt and/or reproduce brochure designed for distribution to parents; and other reproducible art for custom designing materials related to the parent as witness concept.
