Family Formation



The mission of Family Formation is to help parents respond to the Church's call to be "the first and foremost educators of their children." Our purpose is to aid families as they grow in their love and knowledge of the Catholic Faith.


What is Family Formation?

Family Formation is a unique family catechesis program which supports parents in their role as the primary educators of their children in the Catholic Faith. Family Formation is a tried-and-true curriculum developed more than 20 years ago by regular parents who were searching for a better option than was available at the time.  

The materials are engaging, down-to-earth, and easy to understand. With the help of games, quizzes, stories, and music, the lessons transmit solid Catholic teaching and bring the Faith to life within the family.  

Since its beginning in 1988, Family Formation has grown to serve thousands of families all across the United States, in Canada, and beyond.
