Knowing Our Faith: Building Strong Catholic Families
Katherine Angulo, Associate Director of Youth Ministry
| Office of Formation & Discipleship

Though usually referring to resuscitating someone’s heart, CPR, in this case represent for Catholic Parent Revival, is a jump start straight to the heart of the family – the parents. As a program of the National Catholic Youth Ministry’s Strong Catholic Families Initiative, Katherine Angulo, the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Associate Director of Youth Ministry, has worked nationally to debut the program to Spanish-speaking parents in the Archdiocese of Atlanta, providing parents with a time to pray, be encouraged, and leave with renewed hope in God and their family.

“Catholic Parent Revival is a time to lift up family issues and learn to pray for your family.”

“Parents need encouragement and hope. We want parents to leave with hope, hope in God.”

“We want to help them create a mission statement for their family, to bring their identity back to Catholicism.”
