Paradisus Dei (Latin for the Paradise of God) was founded in 2001 to help families discover the superabundance of God within marriage and family life.
Who We Are
We are apostles of the new evangelization who believe that the best days of the Church lie in the future, not in the past. We are a family ministry inspired by the vision of Pope St. John Paul II and seek to build a new springtime for Christianity based upon the foundation of the Christian family.
What We Do
We change lives. We provide inspiration, formation, and a pathway that leads to conversion and spiritual growth which overflows into our families, our churches, our communities, and greater society. We put forth the Holy Family at Nazareth as a model for all families as they teach us that even in the midst of this fallen world, one can find holiness, superabundant joy, and union with God in their home.
How We Do It
We expand the mind and touch the heart by creating rich Catholic content. Through our parish-based programs, retreats, formation series, and home studies we help families encounter God within their homes. We walk with parishes and dioceses to implement our programs that help build community via small groups. By integrating current science with the timeless teaching of the faith and the wisdom of the saints, we develop a vision that soars above the debates of our day to glimpse the hidden face of God present in our midst.
