The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has made available to parishes an exciting new digital tool for teaching and learning the Catholic faith. This “virtual library” of Catholic teaching is available  “on demand”  for personal growth, family study, small group and parish-wide encounters with Christ through the teachings of his Church.

How to register your parish on FORMED

While your parishioners can subscribe and pay for their own personal accounts on FORMED, it is recommended that your parish or school establish a master account which allows free access to the FORMED content for every member of your parish.  Every ministry in your parish will benefit from gaining the incredible content featured on formed while, at the same time, giving each of your parish members the opportunity to engage the service from their homes, offices, phones, iPad’s, every place and every device they may currently use.
