We are ready & excited to kick off another great year of formation of our One Accord community.  Please read on for all the details.

First and first and foremost, we need lots and lots of volunteers.  If you have a love for people and a love for our faith, WE NEED YOU!

Formation Opportunities starting this Fall.  Sign up now so we can be ready for you.

Family Formation is a fun, creative and information rich program for families with children Kindergarten through 5th grade.  Our families gather once per month for a time of learning, fellowship and preparation for home instruction of their family.  The children come and spend time with a leader and other children their age learning truths of the faith, doing activities and having fun while the parents gather. Monthly sessions are offered the 1st Sunday of the month at 9:45 am at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Isanti and the 1st Wednesday of the month at Sts. Peter & Paul in Braham 6:30-8:30 pm.  At the time of registration you will choose which location is best for you.

EDGE is our dynamic, middle school program for our youth 6th-8th grade which features music, prayer, speakers, activities and small group time.  We top off each evening with great snacks, fun and hospitality.  EDGE runs the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings of the month from 6:30-8:30 pm at Christ the King in Cambridge.

Discipleship groups for 9th-12th graders.  This year we are shifting from our Life Teen model to this focus.  Your youth will gather with a group of gender and age specific peers along with adult leaders.  Our goal for these groups is for your youth to meet in a small group setting with an adult helping them explore their personal relationship with Jesus through scripture, prayer and practical daily applications of their faith.  Lots of fun will be had too.

CONFIRMATION In the 10th grade the discipleship group focus will be exploring the Holy Spirit and preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.  Confirmation will occur after the completion of the 10th grade school year-likely in early summer
