Within Lay Formation, Diocesan, Aboriginal and Ukrainian Catholics spend time learning more about the Catholic faith, sharing their faith and life experiences, and deepening their prayer lives. It is a time of learning, a time for friendship, a time of discernment and a time of growing ever closer to Christ.
LAY FORMATION IS NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR FALL 2019
Lay Formation is a live-in program, hosted at Queens’ House of Retreat and Renewal in Saskatoon – a peaceful and beautiful setting on the banks of the South Saskatchewan river.
