About this Episode

JPII once said in a homily “As the family goes…so goes the whole world in which we live.” As I continue to beat the drum for missional communities, I’d like to go deeper and look at the foundation of these communities: the family.

Did you know that 85-90% of Catholics in the pews on Sunday are from intact families? If we want to fight the current diminishment of the Church, we must pay attention to this trend.

Today, my guest, J.P. De Gance, tells us about his ministry, Communio. They help parishes diagnose the relationship health of their members and to come up with a plan that meets the felt need of the people. As the statistic implies, healthy relationship are the key to drawing people back to the gospel.
