LESSON PLANS FROM KG TO STD XII ON FAMILY LIFE: LOVE IS OUR MISSION

This year being dedicated to the Family with the theme, “Family, Become what you are”, the DFSC has decided to celebrate the Pastoral year 2015-16, in the form of lesson plans prepared by the Diocese of Philadelphia as a part of the preparatory process for the World Meeting of Families in September 2015, in schools and Higher Secondary Schools in Goa.
The lesson plans are well prepared and simple to deliver. The main aim of the lesson plans is to communicate to children that Love is the mission of each and every human being and we have to communicate the same to every other we meet to set in place a world order as per the plan of God.
There are 2 books for the same the details of which are in the letter of Fr. Kenneth Teles, the Director, DFSC, and is self explanatory. It is hoped that the schools will take up the same to impart the knowledge of God’s love to the students.

Natural Family Planning awareness week (19th to 25th July 2015)

Natural Family Planning Awareness Week is a national educational campaign.  The Diocesan Family Service Centre sends a letter each year to make aware in the parishes the reason and beauty of NFP.

The dates of Natural Family Planning Awareness Week highlight the anniversary of the papal encyclical Humanae Vitae (July 25) which articulates Catholic beliefs about human sexuality, conjugal love and responsible parenthood.

The Church teaches that the sacrament of marriage symbolizes Christ’s relationship with His Church. What is this relationship but one of total, faithful, permanent, and fruitful love! This is exactly what Our Archbishop wants us to reflect this pastoral year through his Pastoral Letter.
