“I . . . offer my support of Heroic Families, an apostolate that has recently been established in the Archdiocese of Denver by Dr. Peter Howard and his wife Mrs. Chantal Howard. . . . Heroic Families primarily extends its ministry through its Ascend retreats, which I invite you to consider for your diocese or parish.” Click here for +Archbishop Aquila’s full letter.

  “So many attempts at ministry talk over people’s heads and fail to speak into their lives. It’s so easy to become a Church of theoreticians. What the devil  really fears is people actually becoming holy, and putting their faith into action in the simple ways amidst the daily grind of life. But who’s telling them how? Where is the St. Francis De Sales of our day offering practical, down to earth roadmaps for families struggling to be happy, peaceful, successful…whole? Look no further. . . . Heroic Families.”

Dan Burke

  “If you’re a member of a family and you care about the direction of your children and whether or not they stay in the faith or whether or not you grow together in the family instead of subjecting yourself to the dis-integration and the forces of society that are fighting against you,  I think you should get involved with Heroic Families that Peter and Chantal Howard are doing.” Dan Burke is the Executive Director for the National Catholic Register. He is also Founder and President of the Avila Institute for Spiritual Formation and Dan is the author of the best selling book Navigating the Interior Life.

  “We need to be heroic with our lives, heroic with our relationship with our God . . . more sacrifice and more time committed to Christ before the Blessed Sacrament. To  build heroic families, it really requires an act of the will — a choice — but it all comes from that relationship with God above first. Heroic Families is one resource where you can learn about how to become a heroic family because we all want to be saints.” Seth DeMoor is Founder and videographer for One Billion Stories.
