On the Road Again

June 6, 2017

Later this week, we have the pleasure of going back to beautiful Maine to present Family Formation to a group of parish leaders.  If you’re in the area, join us!


Thank you to St. Peter’s in Geneva, Illinois!

We were so blessed to present Family Formation to a group of parents and catechists in Geneva last week, and are grateful to be an ongoing part of their goal to help everyone in their parish and parish boundaries to have a personal encounter and relationship with Jesus!

Watch more about their beautiful mission here:


(Thanks also to our lovely hosts, Dianne and Stan!)

While on our recent road trip to Omaha, we stopped for a visit in LeMars, Iowa and were pleased to spot evidence of their lively Family Formation program.

Also, St. Joseph’s is a breathtaking example of a parish renovation.  If you ever get a chance, be sure to visit!


Thanks, Omaha!

We were so blessed to speak to representatives from the Archdiocese of Omaha recently.  We met lots of experienced and potential Family Formation users, got to hear testimonies from DREs and priests who see the fruits of Family Formation in their parishes, and we heard from Archbishop George Lucas, whose pastoral plan for the archdiocese welcomes Family Formation as an integral part of evangelizing the families in his care!


On the road again!

On the RoadJoin us on January 28 as we present Family Formation at a workshop hosted by the Diocese of Sioux City, at Sacred Heart Church in Spencer, Iowa.

Priests, deacons, directors of religious education/faith formation, youth ministers and parents are encouraged and welcome to attend.

This will be an opportunity to learn more about how to encourage parents to be the primary educators of their children in the faith, said Linsey Hoard, assistant director of youth catechesis and evangelization.

Parishes in the Diocese of Sioux City that are using Family Formation include All Saints in Le Mars, St. Cecelia’s in Algona and St. Mary’s in Larchwood (first in the diocese to use the program).

“We’ve been getting a lot of questions recently and it has had a resurgence,” said Hoard. “I wanted to have them come and give their presentation. If they have questions or concerns, they can ask the representatives.”

The workshop will conclude with lunch. To RSVP for lunch email Hoard at and read the complete article at the Catholic Globe.

Registration is still open for the 2nd annual Rediscover Catholic Celebration sponsored by the Archdiocese of Saint Paul/Minneapolis, but I’m pretty sure they sold out last year, so don’t wait too long!   It’s a fantastic opportunity to get together with several thousand brothers and sisters in the Faith, to hear nationally-known Catholic speakers, visit with great vendors,  and hear inspiring music.  Friday is geared toward young adults (18-39 in the Church’s mind) and Saturday offers programs for kids in grades K-10, in addition to the adult program.  You can register here or check out these ways you can win tickets.

Last year, several members of the Family Formation staff carpooled over and all agreed that we needed to go back again, but next time as vendors.  We’re pleased to announce that you can find us in the Vendor Area this year!  Stop by to say “hi” when you’re there, and bring your friends.  We’d love to see Family Formation spread in this Archdiocese and your personal recommendation is a great way to make that happen.

Tune in …

Click above to hear Fr. Owen Korte and DRE Mary Harper from Ralston, Nebraska talk about  Family Formation and the upcoming Family Formation Conference/Celebration in Elkhorn, NE on May 22.  Cost is $15 per person (which includes lunch) and you can register by emailing

They both did a great job of summarizing the program and sharing the blessings they’ve seen through Family Formation at their own parish – it’s well worth a few minutes of your time to hear this interview!
