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.
