Safe Haven Sunday – Equipping the Family: Having Critical Conversations
The constant flood of influence that comes through the internet and social media in all of its various forms, along with social pressures from peers make it difficult for children to live virtuous and holy lives. In the digital age, it’s not a matter of if your child will see something inappropriate online. It’s only a matter of when. And regrettably, internet pornography is teaching our children how and what to think about sex and marriage.

The weekend of October 24th – 25th, we will be celebrating Safe Haven Sunday. This weekend of awareness will provide free resources to you to give you confidence for how to talk to your children about internet dangers, as well as their personal online and offline choices. Please join us with your prayers and presence as we prepare for this unique event. To learn more, please contact Kelley Peffer at kpeffer@stlukercc.org or visit www.stlukercc.org . (NOTE: This event was originally scheduled for March but was cancelled due to the pandemic.)

Safe Haven Sunday is celebrated through prayer and reflection within the context of the Mass. After Mass, we will make available Covenant Eyes’ most recent book, Confident: Helping Parents Navigate Online Exposure (one per family, please). This book includes a free seven-day text-to-opt-in program that provides practical tips for caring adults to create safer digital environments for themselves and young people. Simply text SECURE to 66866 to begin receiving guidance today!
