The Office of Family Life, Pro-Life, and Evangelization is a ministry of Bishop Vetter and the Diocese of Helena. In part, this office exists to provide opportunities and resources to build, strengthen, and create a culture of marriage and family life within our Diocese.

In our world today, Christ’s vision of marriage and of the family is one which invites us to live abundantly!

Join us as we create intentional community through opportunities where encounters are likely and relationships grow.

Upcoming Events


  • The Marriage Course

    The Marriage Course is a seven-week series designed for married couples wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship. The series is set in an environment that emulates a relaxed evening for the two of you to relax and invest in your relationship. Enjoy dedicated one-on-one discussion time with your spouse—not as a group. Hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be provided. Childcare is for ages 2-11. Capacity is limited and childcare registration is first come, first serve.

  • Mondays, March 6 to April 24, 2023 6:00 to 8:00 PM

  • The Helena Knights of Columbus Hall located: 1867 N. Washington St., Helena, MT 5960.

Retrouvaille Retreat

Is your relationship coming apart? Is there little or no meaningful communication? Are you considering separation or divorce? Are you unsure what to do? Consider Retrouvaille.

Journey Weekend

The Catholic Journey Experience is part of the Diocese of Helena’s response to the call for a new evangelization. Rooted in community and personal witness, this weekend offers an awakening to a deeper friendship with Christ.
