"Transforming the world one family at a time."
Vision of Family Formation, Ham Lake, MN
"The rights and duty of parents to give education is essential...original and primary...and it is irreplaceable and incapable of being entirely delegated to others."
Familiaris Consortio, 36
"As a church, we recognize our ineffectiveness in catechizing children if their parents are not involved in the process. Through Family Formation, parents are evangelized and catechized and come to understand what the Church is asking of them. By giving them support and encouragement in their mission, we are responding to the Church's call."
Family Formation, Ham Lake, MN

From 2017-2018 Family Formation"Where Heaven and Earth Meet...An Overview of the Mass" One of the home lessons including assembling a model altar. A family shared their model with us. "The Call: Are You Listening?" Vocations & Holy Orders.Each family was given the name, address & photo of a seminarian in our Diocese to pray for through May. Families were encouraged to write their seminarian. We heard from families who did this and learned that the children really enjoyed getting a letter and hearing back from their seminarian. Great!! Please continue to pray for vocations in our parishes & diocese."The Ten Commandments"One of the home lessons included Lenten activities. One family made various crosses with their Lego set.
