Summary/Abstract: Salvific mission of the Church is not realized only by the priests, but the essential role is played by lay persons, especially in the field of evangelization. A particular area of evangelization and catechization is a family, not only as a suitable object for this purpose, but especially as an important subject of evangelization. Parents are the first evangelizers and principal educators of their children from an early age and those in this task are difficult to replace. Through parents the children are formed, but also through children the parents are formed. The paper analyzes some specific ways and forms of evangelistic services in the conditions and circumstances in which the family may bring the Gospel message.
