Share your parish’s FORMED Subscription

Lent is a great time to share your parish’s FORMED subscription. Print out these Bookmarks, Postcards or Business Cards and share with parishioners. You can hand them out after Masses, do a ‘reverse collection’ to share them at the end of Mass, mail them out to parishioners or put them as a bookmark in a book give away!

Offer The Search to your parish

The Search, is a video-based program designed to enkindle wonder as it takes people on a journey through life’s enduring questions. Consider offering one session of The Search each week during Lent.

Offer The Search :

  • in small groups (live or virtual on various days and times)
  • in a large group that breaks into small discussion groups (live or virtual)
  • Parish-wide study (large group, small groups, and/or families/individuals)

Forgiven – English & Spanish

Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession, explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God’s love. By looking at God’s revelation of his mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God’s invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Also available in Spanish: https://watch.formed.org/perdonado
