What supports do families need from the Church? What are the pressures they face in their day to day lives? What are the challenges, joys, highs and lows in families today? Where do they seek support when it is needed? Where do they see the role of the Church in their lives and in helping them cope with everyday life issues and events?

The Diocese of Hamilton, through the Family Ministry Office, wants to hear from you on these topics. You can do this in two ways:

  1. Attend our Symposium for Families being held at the Cathedral Basilica of Christ the King on September 23rd, 2017 beginning with Mass celebrated by Bishop Crosby at 9:30 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. The day will consist of presentations on what we know about families today and then a lot of time for input from all those present on how we as a Church can support and assist families in their daily lives. Child minding will be available for children 3-13 with fun activities throughout the day!

  1. Fill in the on line survey posted on the website: Family Symposium Survey.

The more people who engage in both these events the greater the knowledge we will gather. Family matters - help us discover how the Diocese can help you in the most important role lived out in family.
