SAFE HAVEN SUNDAY: Having Critical Conversations


February 27th & 28th

The most powerful tool we have when it comes to teaching our children about the beauty of their sexuality in the digital age is conversation. Real, honest, “look them in the eyes” conversations about their deep questions. In the digital age, passive parenting is not an option—the internet never rests.

Our Lady of Mercy is setting aside this weekend, February 27th & 28th to celebrate our second annual Safe Haven Sunday in order to provide free resources to assist you with confidently talking to your children about internet dangers, as well as their online and offline choices.

Safe Haven Sunday is celebrated through prayer and reflection within the context of the Mass. Many resources for Safe Haven Sunday can be found in Covenant Eyes’ recent book, Confident: Helping Parents Navigate Online Exposure. This book includes a free seven-day text-to-opt-in program that provides practical tips for caring adults to create safer digital environments for themselves and young people. Simply text SECURE to 66866 to begin receiving guidance today!

Thank you for celebrating with us! If you have any questions about this awareness weekend, please contact the Diocese of Baton Rouge at or visit
God bless our families and keep them safe and holy.
