FORMED, a digital tool known to refresh traditional parish resources by providing impactful, on-demand, web and mobile app tools.
The diocese subsidizes complimentary subscriptions for one full year to FORMED. With this subscription, any person living within the parish boundaries can have access to the FORMED content.
This unique partnership with FORMED is part of a three-year initative. Approximately 160 Catholic parishes within the eight-county diocese has the ability to access the FORMED content at no cost thanks to the funding from the Rooted in Faith - Forward in Hope campaign.
Using FORMED is an excellent way for Catholics to learn, be inspired and share the Catholic faith as missionary disciples.
Each week FORMED provides individuals and parishes a listing of their top picks and most downloaded material. Whether it is sacramental prep, RCIA and youth ministry for parishes, an individual Bible study or trying to find something for the whole family to watch, FORMED has a varied menu of options that will empower our community of Catholics.
