One of the Biggest Threats Facing Families Today

Intentionally Catholic hosts Dan Hansen and Father Ron Hutchinson discuss one of the biggest threats facing families today: a lack of connectedness. Everyone is busy with everything from 101 extracurricular activities to internet surfing on smart phones. Our schedules are crazy, the digital world is constantly clamoring for our attention, and family time suffers.

Your family is your vocation! And it's time to make the sacrifices necessary to live into that vocation. It's not easy. But it's something we can all do! And the time to start is now.
