We are excited to announce that our parish has become a partner in a dynamic faith formation program called FORMED. This program is designed to help our parish form adults in the Catholic faith, and can be used both here at the parish and in our own homes.
Log-in by clicking on the "REGISTER" box and then enter the parish access code (GDC829) and your email address.
Scroll below to see the various programs available, or head to formed.org to investigate them all yourself!
As a member of our parish, you can access FORMED anytime on the web, using your computer, smartphone, or tablet, both here and at home. It is extremely important that we as Catholics not only know our Catholic faith, but also bear witness to Christ in our daily lives, particularly in this time of the New Evangelization. We strongly encourage every parishioner to take advantage of this excellent resource and make it a priority to learn more about our faith so that we can not only live it out more deeply, but also share it with others.
Some ways to use it effectively:

Symbolon is an immersion in the faith for the whole parish. It aims at transforming adults on all levels—how we think, how we pray, and how we live— by immersing us in instruction about the Word of God and the Catholic Faith.

The 20 episodes in this program will take you through the entire story of the Catholic faith and includes topics such as Sacred Scripture, Salvation History, Jesus, the Church, Mary & the Saints, the Sacraments (including Confession and the Eucharist), Catholic Morality, God’s Plan for Human Sexuality, and Catholic Social Teaching.
