Our Lady of the Rosary Family Catechism is brought to you by Voice of the Family, formed to promote Catholic teaching on the family. The following truths are particularly at the heart of Voice of the Family’s work:

• Marriage, the exclusive, life-long union of one man and one woman, is the foundation of a stable and flourishing society and is the greatest protector of children, born and unborn.

• The procreative and unitive ends of marriage cannot licitly be separated; the rejection of this truth lies at the root of modern attacks on life and the family.

• Parents are the primary educators of their children and the protection of this right is essential for building a new “culture of life”.
