The Four Tasks of the Family

John Paul the Great was proud to be a champion of the family and its crucial role in the life of all Christians. Along with the many letters and homilies directed to the family, he also wrote Familiaris Consortio. It is an Apostolic Exhortation on the Role of the Christian Family in the Modern World. Within that remarkable document, he identifies four primary tasks that each family (Domestic Church) should strive to accomplish.


1 Forming a community of persons
2. Serving Life
3. Participating in the development of society
4. Sharing in the life and mission of the Church
