About the Family Life Ministry

The Family Life ministry serves as a resource to parishes, deaneries, and other institutions within the Diocese on the pastoral care of the family. Our goal is to assist the parish leaders in the development of comprehensive programs for families adapted to the needs of each individual parish community.

The Diocese of Dallas Family Life Department exists to encourage and empower parishes to minister to the diversity of families that are present today in our communities by offering education, resources, and support to families in all aspects of their life.

We can also provide information and referral on family services such as counseling in different areas and situations that affect our families today.
