Safe Haven Sunday: Equipping the Family, Safeguarding Children

The family home is to be a safe haven. But, the inappropriate use of technology in the home deprives it of this role and is the greatest threat to the sanctity of marriages and families today. Pornography and other online threats are often one click away, and parents can feel overwhelmed with not knowing how to best protect their children in our fast-paced digital world.

Next weekend, February 17-18, the First Sunday of Lent, the Archdiocese of New Orleans is taking a bold step to help families by celebrating “Safe Haven Sunday.” This awareness day will provide access to practical resources that any caring adult can use to protect themselves and our precious young people from online risks.

Please join us with your prayers and presence as we prepare for this unique event. To learn more, please contact the Archdiocese of New Orleans Office of Marriage and Family Life at or visit
