Off the Shelf 175 – Angele Regnier
This week Angèle Regnier joins me to discuss how we can build strong Catholic families who are in the world but not of the world. Taking it one step further we get into the nuts and bolts of how to keep our kids Catholic. All of this and more on this week’s Off the Shelf. Get the Regnier families book Brick by Brick: build a strong family that won’t lose their faith in a secular culture.
From the Publisher Sophia Institute Press
Catholic parents who fear that their teens and adult children may leave the Faith will welcome Brick by Brick, the encouraging story of André and Angèle Regnier, whose five adult children don’t merely continue to go to Mass but have all even become Catholic missionaries!
Better yet, concerned parents will learn from these remarkable pages how they, too, can raise their children to have a similar personal relationship with Jesus, live their Faith dynamically, and have evangelistic hearts—even while remaining ordinary, well-rounded, approachable people passionate about life in all its aspects.
The Regnier parents are often asked, “How did you do it? How did you raise children who are so active in sharing and living their Faith?”
Here you’ll hear the answer from each member of the family, parents and children. From their many voices, real-life stories, and often amusing anecdotes emerge many wise principles and sure methods you can adapt to your own circumstances: family-proven best practices for raising children strong in the Faith.
André and Angèle Regnier co-founded Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO) in 1988 at their alma mater, the University of Saskatchewan. For thirty years, CCO has ministered to students on campuses across Canada. In 2015, André and Angèle were awarded the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Medal for distinguished service to the Church, the highest medal that can be awarded to laymen by the pope. They have five children and two grandchildren and currently live in Ottawa.
The narrator of Brick by Brick is their oldest daughter Mylène, who is now the mother of two. Together, Angèle, André, their five children, and three in-laws are the authors of this book.
