About Us

Growing Up Catholic is a ministry of The Pastoral Center, a small (but mighty) family-owned ministry and business.

Growing Up Catholic

Faith Formation that Lasts a Lifetime

Our broader Growing Up Catholic ministry is driven by the idea that we should evangelize, equip, and coach parents to form their own children in faith.

Helping Parents Grow in Faith

By forming their own children, the parents themselves are formed more deeply in their own faith. Parents must have faith in order to share it with their kids.

From Catechists to Coaches

The parish leader's role remains a very important one. They partner with and coach parents to be the primary catechists of their own children.

Effective, Affordable Tools

Our team has developed a rich collection of engaging, parish-tested resources that your families will love and will fit your budget.
