“No one is without a family in this world: the Church is a home and family for everyone, especially those who ‘labor
and are heavy laden.’”

— Familiaris Consortio 85, Mt 11:28

 

Trusted resources, programming and guidance

The Center for Family Life Formation was born out of the Family Life Office, which was established within the Archdiocese of Omaha in 1979. The Center for Family Life Formation is home to a robust collection of highly valued and sought after resources, programs and services in support of the family – from preparing for marriage to building a family to experiencing life’s difficulties to growing older.

As the recognized and positive impact of these resources continues to gain momentum within the Archdiocese of Omaha and well beyond, the Center for Family Life Formation serves as a significant source of support for families and individuals in need and for clergy and other leaders.

The Center serves Catholics and non-Catholics; though the majority of our resources are designed for Catholics, many are not exclusive to Catholics. Individuals from all faiths rely upon the Center for programs, services, resources and direction to aid in their life journeys.
