Knowing Your Faith is Loving Your Faith

We recently introduced to our parish community Formed, which is an online Catholic resource for understanding your faith better. Formed is relevant for our time because many of the topics deal with contemporary issues of faith. These topics assist Catholics engage people in a healthy and effective evangelization.

Evangelization begins with the prayerful renewal of our faith. Many of us have an understanding of our faith that comes from our time in Catholic schools. Formed is a contemporary presentation of many aspects of the Catholic faith . Formed is probably the best current online faith formation program for this purpose. It is sponsored by the Augustine Faith Institute.

There are components on Formed for adults, youth and children. There is content that will help you reflect upon and get more out of the Sunday readings each week. There are ebooks, videos, talks and presentations from renowned, respected and effective leaders in Catholic evangelization today. There is something for everyone.

In order to get people engaged, we are offering a subscription to Formed free of charge. All you need to get started is to register through our parish website.
