Lent Is Just Few Weeks Away!

The FORMED Team has put together some tips on how make the most of your FORMED subscription during this Lenten season.

Lectio: Salvation with Dr. Michael Barber

Brand new to FORMED is the video study, Lectio: Salvation with Dr. Michael Barber. There are 10 sessions in this course. Consider doing the first 5-6 sessions during Lent and inviting parishioners to continue after Easter for the remaining sessions. Keep your parishioners engaged, even after Lent is over.

Ways to Use This Study:

  • Small groups
  • Large group presentation that breaks into small discussion groups
  • A parish-wide study (individuals and families watch on their own at home)

Use promotional resources (bulletin inserts, pulpit announcements, flyers, and homily talking points) found on at the bottom of this page to invite parishioners and keep them engaged throughout the study.

To make the most of the study, consider purchased full-color study and leader guides, available on Catholic.store. FORMED Parishes get 60% off 5-pack study guides. Take advantage of your discount by visiting Catholic.Store

Looking for a Lenten study for your Spanish-speaking parishioners? We invite you to reflect on the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ by using the first five episodes of the Augustine Institute original, Lectio: San Marcos, presented by Luis Soto. Use the promotional resources (available for download at the bottom of this page) to invite parishioners and keep them engaged throughout the study.

Like Lectio: Salvation, use the additional sessions of Lectio: San Marcos to keep your parishioners engaged after Lent is over. Don’t forget your study guides from Catholic.Store!

Salvation: What Every Catholic Should Know

Dr. Michael Barber, the presenter of Lectio: Salvation also wrote a book on the same topic, Salvation: What Every Catholic Should Know

Did you know you can give your parishioner a Lenten or Easter gift for Purchase for your parish by visiting Catholic.Store and selecting “$1.50 Specials” from the top navigation.
