Mission Statement

"Be doers of the word, and not merely hearers."
James 1:22
"The Church speaks clearly of the duties of family members to one another that build a radiant faith. . . . But the Church doesn't stop there; it also speaks of the relationship between families and the larger culture, the duty of service, working for the common good, welcoming strangers, and giving voice to the Christian conscience. That is the message; you are the messenger."
A Radiant Faith: The Gift of Families to Families
Address of the Most Reverend Anthony M. Pilla, Bishop of Cleveland
to the Christian Family Movement
August 5, 1995
