“The catechesis given by parents with the family ‘precedes, accompanies and enriches all other forms of catechesis.’
When children are baptized, parents accept the responsibility to bring up their children in the practice of faith
and to see to it that the divine life that God gives them is kept safe from the poison of sin,
to grow always stronger in their hearts.”
