About

Welcome to CatholicMom.com, now a ministry of HOLY CROSS FAMILY MINISTRIES!

CatholicMom.com, all about Faith, Family, and Fun from a Catholic perspective, is now  part of the ministry founded by sainthood candidate Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., well-known for his famous slogan, “The family that prays together stays together.”

CatholicMom.com was started by Lisa Hendey in 2000 to create a community for Catholic parents to share insights on living their faith with their family. The website has grown substantially over the years to become a rich resource for all Catholics seeking spiritual enrichment for their families.  It continues to provide fresh perspectives from the enriching columnists and contributors with daily articles and reflections as well as book and tech recommendations.

Now with the support of Holy Cross Family Ministries (HCFM), with mission offices in 16 countries, CatholicMom.com will grow globally.  With more than 100 contributors, CatholicMom.com provides information, activities and daily reflections on an array of relevant topics. Holy Cross Family Ministries offers prayer programs, digital media, daily prayers via email, Facebook and apps to encourage family prayer.  CatholicMom.com’s community will enhance HCFM’s brands, Family Rosary and Family Theater Productions, all to more fully support the spiritual needs of families.

Lisa M. Hendey, CatholicMom.com Founder and Editor

“I look forward to having the support of Holy Cross Family Ministries to continue to expand the mission of CatholicMom around the world,” said Lisa Hendey, who founded the website. “Father Willy Raymond and his team have the experience to grow our community and explore new directions to serve today’s young families worldwide.”

CatholicMom.com is driven by many talented contributors who share their relevant content to guide young parents. Lisa Hendey will stay on board as an advisor to help direct the growth of the website. She plans to step away from day-to-day operations to spend more time on writing projects.

Fr. Willy Raymond, CSC.

“Over the years, Lisa and her contributors have done a remarkable job building an inspiring and impactful site for Catholic parents,” said Father Willy Raymond, C.S.C., President of Holy Cross Family Ministries. “CatholicMom is reaching the 21st century young Catholic family with faith, hope and love. We look forward to working with Lisa and all the contributors to make enhancements, grow the reach and engage more families.”

In the spirit of its founder, Servant of God Patrick Peyton, Holy Cross Family Ministries inspires, promotes and fosters the prayer life and spiritual well-being of families throughout the world. Its mission outreach includes family faith-based media, including social media and prayer programs, to fulfill the founder’s vision that “the family that prays together stays together.”  www.FatherPeyton.orgwww.FamilyRosary.orgwww.FamilyTheater.org
