About Us

Catholic Family Services was established in 1961 by the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls.

We provide grief programs, individual and family counseling and adoption services. We have five convenient locations across eastern South Dakota. Counseling is professional and confidential.

Check out our events calendar for more information on upcoming grief retreats, Project Rachel and our annual Gift of Hope concert.

Counselors and staff members of Catholic Family Services are available for lectures, workshops and in-services for non-profit organizations, schools, Church organizations and service clubs.

Most insurances accepted; sliding fee scale.
