Human Sexuality Formation

The Church affirms that parents have the right and duty to be the primary educators of their children. However, giving children an adequate preparation for adult life, particularly with regard to the truth and meaning of human sexuality, can be difficult, especially amidst the confusing and sometimes harmful messages and trends in the broader culture. We are here to help.

LoveEd Parent Seminars

In a society that promotes cheap, fleeting sex at ever younger ages, it has never been more important for parents to show their children the true meaning of love and sex, a meaning that far surpasses anything the world offers. 

LoveEd is a brand new program that helps empower parents to teach both the theology and science of human sexuality within the context of God’s plan for love and life. Presented by well-known speaker/radio personality/author of LoveEd, Coleen Kelly Mast.

At a time when young people are asserting their independence, LoveEd gives parents the knowledge and support they need to discuss what is often (but doesn’t have to be!) an uncomfortable topic and helps parents and their kids develop closer relationships.

Targeted to parents of kids age 2-14 (but open to parents with kids of all ages)

Our Power to LoveOurPowerToLove.gif

Our Power To Love is a versatile, easy to read book on fertility appreciation written by medical and theological experts at Family Honor, Inc.
It incorporates the physiology of sexual maturing within Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, and teaches the basics of fertility appreciation within the larger context of the virtue of chastity.
Designed to prepare and empower parents, the primary educators of their children, to evangelize about the truth and meaning of God’s gift of sexuality, this book is a primary resource selected by the Human Sexuality Formation Committee for use throughout the Archdiocese of Omaha.

About Us

After more than a year of prayer, research and review, the archdiocesan Human Sexuality Formation committee is ready to help. While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, there are several very good resources and programs that can be used in a variety of ways in a parish, a school or even at home.
