Dear Youth Church Parents,
On Sunday, February 7, we are having a MANDATORY meeting for all of the Youth Church parents during class time to give a presentation on the "The Truth and Meaning of Human Sexuality". Our special guest speaker Mrs. Dorothy Amorella and Fr. Simon will be in attendance. The meeting will take place in Trainor Hall from 11:15-11:45am. All Youth Church parents are required to come. We will have a sign in sheet.
What is the Truth and Meaning of Human Sexuality?
A document issued November 21, 1995, by the Pontifical Council for the Family offering guidelines for education within the family. It addresses particularly the difficulty in today's social context of giving children an adequate preparation for adult life, particularly with regard to education in the true meaning of sexuality. It seeks to help parents with pastoral guidelines regarding the fundamental content about the truth and meaning of sex, within the framework of a genuine and rich anthropology. This guide is meant to be neither a treatise of moral theology nor a compendium of psychology. But it does owe much to the gains of science, to the socio-cultural conditions of the family, and to the proclamation of gospel values which are always new and can be incarnated in a concrete way in every age...
Recommendations for parents include formation within the family, principles regarding information about sexuality, various stages in a child's development. The final section addresses parents and educators on the very delicate formation of a child?s personality, particularly in the sphere of sexual education. "It is recommended that parents be aware of their own educational role and defend and carry out this primary right and duty. It follows that any educative activity, related to education for love and carried out by persons outside the family, must be subject to the parents' acceptance of it and must be seen not as a substitute but as a support for their work." Practical guidance for both parents and educators concludes the document.
