- new parents, when a child joins their family by birth or adoption
- parents of young baptismal candidates
- young families interested in your parish
- children in your church day school or preschool program, for their parents

This lays a foundation for the importance of Sundays and daily life near the beginning of the typical school and church school year, and builds upon those essentials with the seasonal issues. Delivery of each issue is currently two weeks prior to the intended publication date in your parish. After November 2001 an entire year's cycle will be available for purchase at once. Issues currently available are: Advent, Lent, Holy Week-Easter, and Pentecost.
- August: Sundays
- early October: Daily life
- late November: Advent-Christmas-Epiphany
- February: Lent
- March or April: Holy Week-Easter-the 50 Days
- June: Pentecost
For each issue your parish orders, you will receive a printed, black and white master copy of the front and back of the issue. The front will be laid out with original content from Faith at Home. The back will be blank except for the Faith at Home header (e.g., "Faith at Home ... Lent 2001 ... Page 2"), so you may use the header when you create your back page content if you like.
At the time you place your order, you provide the parish name and location to be included in the Page One masthead, and specify whether you would like the year to be included in the masthead and Page Two header.
