List of Mormon Family Organizations Found on Wikipedia

Mormon family organizations (i.e.family organizations or associations) are entities created by members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) to accomplish the basic purposes of family life as understood within the church, in order to establish and strengthen family unity and identity across multiple generations.




Purpose and organization 

In 1978 the church asked all families to organize themselves at three levels: as "immediate" families, "grandparent," and "ancestral."[23] Individual or immediate families are regularly encouraged to hold weekly Family Home Evening and participate in family councils. More formal family organizations consist of the descendants of a common ancestor. The purposes of such family organizations may include coordinating family efforts in promoting welfare, education, conducting family history research, holding reunions, compiling family newsletters and publications, and other family-related LDS practices.[24][25] Commemorating family heritage and legacy is another typical purpose and activity for family organizations.
