MARCH is a support group with the purpose of encouraging parents in their role as teachers and primary educators of their children while remaining faithful to the Magisteruim and all the Truths of the Catholic Church. To Learn More see our About Page
The web is FULL of information on “how to homeschool” and it can be overwhelming and time consuming for new parents to get started. The Homeschooling Resource Page was developed to assist our members and anyone who may be interested in homeschooling by collecting relevant on-line information about Catholic homeschooling and placing it here on this blog.
About Our Crest
This Catholic Homeschooling Crest was designed by Christine, a veteran Catholic homeschooling mother of four and graphic designer. She had long intended to design a heraldic school crest that homeschoolers could wear with pride. After much thought and prayer her design speaks for itself. Unlike her other creations, Christine said, “the idea for this one just seemed to flow through me, and the design came together without my having to work and rework the concept. I think it is like that with Truth, just as light flows forth from a flame. It is really His design, after all. I just tried to do it justice.” Christine has allowed us to use her design, as she would love to make her design available to all Catholic homeschoolers to “promote awareness and understanding of our choice of education as a valid, beautiful and holy one.”
Translated: The Latin phrase translates as “We are the primary educators of our children”, a doctrine Pope John Paul II called parents to embrace. The Sacred Heart sits atop the Sword of Truth which rests upon the Keys of St. Peter and points to the book (double meaning for The Bible and a textbook). The globe indicates homeschooling is an extension of the fundamental right all earthly parents possess as bestowed by God: the right to train up our own children. The circle signifies God’s eternal love and the Eucharist. Red and white are for the Body and Blood of Christ. Blue is for Mary’s mantle covering the world, her constant intercession.
THANK YOU CHRISTINE for sharing your gift with us.
