I confess, I am a Catholic bookstore addict. My husband starts to get nervous anytime we are in the vicinity of one because he knows that without a doubt I will want to go in and do some shopping. I love all forms of Catholic media from books to movies. You can imagine my delight when I found out about FORMED.org – a new service similar to Netflix, but with all types of Catholic media!
Augustine Institute, Ignatius Press, and Word on Fire Ministries have teamed up to bring us FORMED. From the comfort of your own home, you can watch Catholic movies and presentations, listen to audio talks, and even read books. The selection includes many popular Catholic speakers and authors (Scott Hahn!) and a variety of materials for everyone in your family. My children love the resources available for the younger audience just as much as I love the content for adults.
We have recently started using both the Symbolon and Reborn series with our small group Bible study. Not only can you watch the video presentations, but study guides are also provided for small group discussion which makes facilitating a meeting convenient and easy. Currently, there are more than 2,300 parishes in the U.S. using FORMED for various ministries. Subscriptions can be purchased by individuals or by parishes.
If I were to purchase each one of these resources separately, it would total more than three hundred and sixty-five dollars! Rather than buying all of these resources separately, I am saving a significant amount of money with a subscription to FORMED.org. Because the content is always being updated, you and your family will have plenty of materials to keep you on track to make 2017 a year in which you grow in holiness and devotion to our Lord.
We are also giving 2 email subscribers a cd copy of Augustine Institute President Dr. Tim Gray’s latest talk, “Can You Trust God?”.
