    Marriage a Turning Point
    Marriage - A turning Point.     Christmas has always been a season of Hope, especially for children and most especially for young children. We invest so much in our children, trying to make them happy    , secure and successful. But new statistics have shown how our secular lifestyles are threatening their future, the future of society.

    The National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA) paints a bleak picture, for there are currently 6,568 Catholic Schools remaining in the USA. During 2014 an additional 88 schools closed or consolidated, while only 27 new schools opened.
