FORMED On Demand is a subscription service offering access to thousands of studies, films, audios, and eBooks.
FORMED offers great digital media from over 40 of the best Catholic content producers including the Augustine Institute, Ignatius Press, the USCCB, Catholic Answers, EWTN, St. Paul Center, Marian Press, Sophia Press, Knights of Columbus, FOCUS, and many more. Using FORMED is an excellent way for all of us to learn, and be inspired to share our faith with others as missionary disciples.
Beginning in February 2019, pastors in the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland will have an opportunity to opt-in for a FREE one year subscription for all members of their parish, thanks to the generous contributions made to the Rooted in Faith – Forward in Hope – Connecting to the People for Evangelization fund. In subsequent years, year 2 and year 3 parishes will have the option of opting – in at the rate of 50% and then 25% respectively. (Please note, in order to opt-in for the FORMED subsidy, at least 2 people need to attend one of the local diocesan training events listed below.)
Together with your pastor create a FORMED team. In addition to yourself and the pastor invite other priests, deacons, those on your parish staff and key lay leaders to join you in rolling out FORMED in the parish by participating in the upcoming informational webinar and local diocesan training.
Whom to invite? First, a person who can act as a technical administrator in setting up and maintaining your parish FORMED website. (To assess who might be your technical admistrator, it should be someone who knows how to purchase something online, who has viewed a video online and who has used a social media platform such as Facebook or Twitter.)
In addition, please consider any priests, deacons, religious, lay ecclesial ministers, the school principal, parish catechetical leader, youth or young adult ministers, pastoral staff members and key lay leaders who may use the resource for faith formation, religious education, evangelization, stewardship, marriage preparation, RCIA, youth ministry, young adult ministry or social justice programs.
