The assistant director of family and life for the archdiocese of Edmonton believes parents play a vital role in educating their children, especially in matters of faith:
“The parents are there to educate; they are the primary educators, the first ones in education on the faith, the first ones in education of what it means to be human and how to interact in society," Diane Rouleau said.

“The Church and the schools and local society are there to support the parents in those tasks.”

Rouleau said the family is also called to produce vocations.
