Concepts related to abstinence education, like chastity, are often downplayed in sexual education. The common thought is that young people will engage in sexual activity and therefore need contraception. This undermines the Catholic teaching on chastity and the ability to practice abstinence with grace. The Church’s teaching on chastity is about self-mastery for the sake of becoming a gift to one’s spouse. The Diocese offers a program called Catholic Academy for Life Leadership to assist parents in forming their teens on chastity and related topics.
