Family Hour

What are the Be Not Afraid Family Hours?

     The "Be Not Afraid Family Hours" are so much more then just a holy hour.  Each Family Hour video beautifully combines devotion and catechism.  While you are praying you are also learning more about the Catechism and other spiritual topics along with hearing inspirational messages from Pope John Paul II and Mother Teresa.  Each 9 week Family Hour has a specific spiritual topic.  

     For example our John 17: The Priestly Prayer of Jesus series has guest speakers discussing and explaining the 17th chapter of the Gospel of St. John and its significance for our lives.  The titles of the nine weeks of this series, are as follows: The Hour of Jesus, Eternal Life Is to Know You, The Work That You Gave Me to Do, I Pray for Them That They May Share My Joy, They Do Not Belong to The World, Consecrate Them in Truth, So That They May Be One, That Love May Be in Them. Each of the one-hour programs includes a beautiful meditative pray-along Rosary, complete with pictures and some mysteries acted out. This series features His Eminence Francis Cardinal Arinze reviewing the documents of the Vatican II, Most Rev. Donald W. Wuerl, Fr. Pablo Straub, C.SS.R. reviewing the Apostolate's Family Catechism, Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J., S.T.D., Fr. George W. Kosicki, Fr. Michael Scanlan, TOR, Dr. Scott Hahn, Ph.D., and Dr. Susan Muto.

 The Family Hours are a wonderful way for families, parish communities & neighborhoods to come together to pray and learn about the Catholic faith.

     The Family Hours were designed to be played in parish churches so families can come together in the Eucharistic Presence of our Lord to pray, learn and go to Confession.  That is a powerful combination inspired by Mother Teresa who was a very dear friend of our founders Jerry & Gwen Coniker.  We do recommend that the Be Not Afraid Family Hours be run in your parish church.  We have found that many families start the Be Not Afraid Family Hours in their home and pray them into their churches.  The Family Hours however may be used in a setting that best suits your family and parish community.
