The model of the traditional nuclear family has been forgotten in American society,
as evidenced by statistical data comparing, over the last few decades, the number of
marriages ending in divorces.
Aim: This article aims to present the activities of the United States Conference of
Catholic Bishops to promote the institution of marriage and the family.
Method: As part of the work on the text, an analytical and synthetic method was
used, which allowed the presenting of a number of initiatives undertaken for the family
using the latest technological achievements.
Conclusions: In the face of difficulties, the American Church undertakes initiatives
not only for believers, but also for seekers and non-believers. Comprehensible language,
various communication channels and an interesting way of presenting content are
employed to “promote” married and family life among members of American society.
