Hey! So Glad You're Here.

Rodzinka Ministry was founded to help foster faithful families. Rodzinka means “little family” in Polish, and it is the name that St. John Paul II used for groups who would get together to discuss and live out the faith. We’ve taken that model and applied it to your family. 

The Problem

Despite the best intentions of the Church, excellent DRE's and youth ministers, passionate volunteers, and holy pastors, there seems to exist a disconnect between the Church and the family. Time and again children go through CCD classes, but then the family doesn't attend Mass. More than just an obligation on Sunday, the faith is meant to be lived out in the home so that the family grows closer to Christ together. ​

 

The Solution

Rodzinka Ministry was founded to help bridge the gap between the parish and the home. We offer podcasts and courses that are not meant to replace the great programs and events at your parish, but can be used as a supplement to help you dive deeper as a family. These interactive episodes can also be used by parishes as the core content for sacramental preparation, RCIA, and much more. 

 

The Catholic Family Show

The goal is simple; to help families pray, reflect on the scriptures, and learn about the saints. This weekly podcast is a fun and faithful show that helps bring the light of Christ right to the comfort of your home. 

In addition to the weekly podcast, you can view our interactive podcast courses on many different aspects of Catholicism.
