Rodzinka means "little family" in Polish, and it is our mission to help you and your family grow in a deeper relationship with our Lord. We have been in ministry long enough to know that if the entire family isn't ignited in Christ, then individual relationship with Him becomes difficult. We don't know your family situation or faith life, but we hope you find a little family through our online, local, or parish resources and that this helps strengthen your relationships. While we are proud and faithful Catholics, our ministry is designed to help Christians of any denomination to grow in prayer, meditation, sacrifice, and knowledge as well as learn about what we believe as Catholics. So, as we hear so often in scripture, "Be not afraid." We want to welcome you into our little family and pray that you find in our ministry a place you can call home.
