FamJam is a Parenting Workshop held at Holy Cross to help encourage and equip parents.

Being a parent is one of the most rewarding, yet challenging jobs in the world, especially in today’s society. How many of us have asked ourselves, “Am I spending enough quality time with my kids? Am I giving them too much stuff? Am I putting enough effort in my marriage? What are we doing well? What areas are we really struggling with and could use help?”  When these questions arise, we often don’t know where to look. It’s rare that we take a step back and evaluate how our home is run. “Fam Jam” is here to help with that! 

This is not just for Holy Cross families.
This is for the whole community!

Here are the Workshops held in 2018:
