How to assign roles to each member of a new family
- If each spouse in a married couple is both active in the parish, assign them the roles Husband and Wife.
- If a married couple has only one active spouse in the parish (for example, if one spouse is not Catholic), make the active Catholic Head, and use Husband or Wife for the other spouse.
- A single head of household, with or without children, should be given the role Head.
- Children should be set as a Son or Daughter.
When you assign roles in this way, children will automatically be linked to their parents' records.
