ABOUT Lay Formation

The Lay Formation Program offers personal transformation through a deeper relationship with God. Lay Formation is grounded on three pillars:

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.

Queens House, SaskatoonLay 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.

Participants commit to the program for a period of two years - one weekend per month, September through June.

Cost is shared between the diocese, your home parish and personal contribution or bursary. For more information on cost breakdown, click here.

"The two years I spent in Lay Formation were a time of joy, of deep enrichment, and growth in both my faith and the meaning of community"
