Because The Wednesday Word shares the Gospel it is aimed at everyone.
However, the resource seeks to engage in particular with the majority of school parents who do not appear to be currently
interested in existing adult or child catechesis,
or in the Church. We aim therefore aim to promote
Catholic truth sensitively but in an inspiring way,
and to inform parents about the relevance of the
faith for themselves and their children.
The resource is primarily seeking to support and share the Good News with parents and carers, because it is the adult's relationship with God
that will have the most significant impact on the
future faith-life of the family. This in turn inevitably
contributes to the overall well-being of the family.
The Wednesday Word aims to help schools
and the Church to enhance links with parents and
carers. This we believe will greatly enrich and
help to achieve the aims of the home, school and
Word is also an excellent way for practising Catholic
families to prepare for the proclamation of the
Gospel at the coming Sunday Mass. It also helps
them to transmit the faith to their children and
so further develop the domestic church.
