Statement of Purpose


Southern California

Catholic Home Educators

is a group of parents committed to raising their children and forming Catholic families for the greater Glory and Honor of God, under the Kingship of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Queenship of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the guidance of the Holy Mother Church.  Having embraced the Sacrament of Matrimony, we recognize the God-given right and responsibility of parents to be the primary educators of their children in all areas of learning.  Because we wish to re-establish the Kingship of Christ in our society, we have chosen to educate our children in our own homes, whether it is on a full-time basis, commonly referred to as homeschooling, or on a part-time basis, such as catechesis. 

We are committed to fulfilling the vow we made before God as Catholic parents at our children’s baptisms.  We intend to provide a forum for all interested persons who support Catholic parents’ rights to educate their children.  Conferences provide the necessary information, support, and encouragement parents need today.  For the sake of the spiritual and temporal well-being of all our children, it is essential that we unite in our efforts to form Catholic families, homes, and lives.
