According to the status quo, that is; simultaneous eruptions of poorly founded families, the constant domestic violence, the many “Christian families” whose life is modeled not after Christ, the rampant divorces, the neglect of duties of family members, the loss of respect and disobedience of children to their parents, and constant frictions within the families deemed to be emanating from the neglect of Catholic Education as are all vivid in Mugalike parish, prompted the researcher to carry out an investigation into the impact of Catholic Education on families basing on the declaration on Christian education with an aim to clearly spell out the value of Catholic Education on the families. 15 After, this study the researcher hopes that, Catholic Education will be accorded its proper place in the lives of Christians by all the stake holders in the education sector. The stake holders that is, the parents, pastors, teachers and even children themselves, will actually value the remote preparation for the future marriages and Catholic Families to yield; responsible parenthood suiting the Divine Will namely that, the marriage bond is irrevocable (Mt.19:6), that married couples help one another to attain holiness in their married life and in the rearing of their children. Adhering to the Divine Will, the married state will be truly the beginning and foundation of human society. Married persons and families will actualize their special importance for both Church and civil society. Christian couples will become witnesses to the faith. They will be able to give clear proof in their own lives of the indissolubility and holiness of the marriage bond, and they will be able to assert with vigour the right and duty of parents and guardians to give their children a Christian upbringing.
