Single & Raising Saints
The number of single-parent families is growing. They are divorced, widowed and never married. Yet, sometimes these families feel disconnected or unsupported because they are not a two-parent household. Through Single & Raising Saints, single parents will learn more about the faith, build a community of friendship and support, discover a welcome atmosphere within their parish, and be invited to participate in all aspects of parish family life.

If you are interested in beginning a single-parent ministry in your community, please view these additional resources:
- Poll your community. It is better to design a ministry around their needs than your own assumptions. Make an assessment by utilizing this questionnaire document, which lists helpful questions to begin conversations, or to gather research.
- Provide your ministry a list of ways that they can glorify God in their spiritual life, so they feel evermore connected to the faith.
- Review the outreach opportunities you currently have in your community, and ask them to be a resource for single parents. Suggestions include food ministry, home maintenance, car maintenance, childcare and financial support.
