Article 17: UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE FAMILIES THEMSELVES
The Holy Family Association, as a grouping of families for the sake of families, remains always under the direction of the families themselves and a priest adviser. The Association promotes its goals by means of periodic meetings and encounters with the families in small groups, assemblies, and congresses.
The Association is structured at the parochial, the diocesan, the national, and the worldwide levels through the establishment of directional councils on each level. The couples making up these councils have each one vote per individual on all issues to be decided by ballot.
