Growing in Faith at Home as a Family

We urge parents, teens and children to find other ways to dive into your faith. We encourage families to spend more deliberate time in family prayer experiences at home, as well as setting aside “quiet time” for their families to take personal prayer time each day.

We also urge parents to take advantage of Formed.org, an online platform of Catholic content for all ages that is completely free to our parishioners! To access Formed.org, you will need to register if you are not already. To do this

  • From the FORMED.org home page select “Sign Up”
  • Select “I belong to a Parish or Organization”
  • Type “St Francis Xavier, Buffalo MN” and select when it appears
  • Type your name and email address
