Families are an important part of the Schoenstatt Movement and help in the renewal of society and Church by the renewal of family life. Families need inspiration and the encouragement of others who share their values and ideals to help them in this renewal.

They form groups of six to eight families who meet regularly to discuss relevant issues on marriage and family life. Generally, these are guided discussions on such issues as the role of parents, communication in the family and the family in context of our times.
