Family Week

Family Week

Begins on the first Sunday in May
In America, Protestant churches, Roman Catholic churches, and Jewish congregations observe National Family Week . While each has its own way of celebrating this event, the emphasis is on the strength that a family can find in religion. Members of the congregation are encouraged to examine their own lives from the perspective of how they have contributed to the religious life of their families, and groups often meet to discuss how to deal with social conditions that are having an adverse effect on family life. National Family Week begins on the first Sunday in May and leads up to Mother's Day and, among Christians, to the Festival of the Christian Home .
Many other countries observe a Family Day, as well, particularly in Africa. In Angola, Family Day is observed on December 25; in Namibia, December 26. Family Day is also the name by which Easter Monday is known in South Africa.
