FAMILY, CHURCH AND SCHOOL - INSTITUTIONS SUPPORTING THE YOUNG PEOPLE'S FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND CONSCIOUSNESS
Family, Church and school are institutions that influence the religious conditions and attitudes of young people. Religious education starts in the family, continues at school and is perfected in the Church.
Because young people benefit of Christian spiritual education in schools, high schools and universities, the missionary priest has the responsibility to assist the transition from the informal aspect to the formal or the spiritual aspect of religious education.
The religious attitude of young people in today’s family and society is a proof that religion has the power to shape their characters.
