About Us


We are a group of parents and grandparents from the Theology of the Body (TOB) Parenting Team of the Apostolate for Catholic Truth, Singapore (ACT), who are passionate about sharing the good news about Catholic parenting.



We empathise with and appreciate the concerns that many Catholic parents have in raising our children well in today’s world. We too have had our fair share of challenges and difficulties in raising our children. We understand these challenges are even more considerable today, with the advent of social media and its attendant problems.


Yet we cannot hide from the online world. It is here to stay. What we want to do is to use it in a positive way to share the good news about Catholic parenting, with the rich teachings of the Catholic Church, our experiences (both good and bad, perhaps sometimes even almost disastrous), and useful resources – online.
