St. Gerard Family Life Center

St. Gerard Family Life Ministry is a response of the shrine to the calling of the Church for renewal and transformation in our society of which the Christian family has a vital role.

 

“The future of humanity passes by way of the family.” The family life apostolate serves as an evangelization process for the total development of the Christian family to become a domestic church sharing the church's life and mission of living out and preaching the Good News of Salvation. “The future of evangelization depends in great part on the church of the home” (Familiaries Consortio, #52).

 

Through the family life program and services, the shrine hopes to serve and help in building the church of the poor and restoring the church of the home towards renewal and transformation of the Filipino nation into a reflection of the Kingdom of God.

St. Gerard Family Life Center (SGFLC) was established on Oct 16, 1995 feast of St. Gerard. The inspiration for the center came when the Redemptorist community saw the long line at the confessional because people wanted to seek advice and consultation after their confessions . Thus, SGFLC was an extension of Sacrament of Reconciliation thru consultation and counselling.

 

Five married couples were selected from volunteers to undergo a series of trainings and seminars with the family life commission of the  Archdiocese of Manila, Pro-Life Phils, Simbahayan Commission and also the Diocese of Paranaque.

 

General Objective: The members of St. Gerard family life ministry SGFLM endeavour to become active missionary witnesses by making the National Shrine of Our Mother of Perpetual Help an effective center of Healing and Reconciliation
