Adult Faith Formation Office | FORMED Subscriptions
We are pleased to announce that the Archdiocese of New York has once again entered into an agreement with the Augustine Institute to assist all parishes in the Archdiocese with the renewal or adoption of a FORMED subscription. About 199 parishes are currently subscribed with over 40,000 people of the Archdiocese using this service. We hope to spread this ministry even more! This year’s campaign begins now and runs through November 15, 2022. In addition to a 10% discount from the Augustine Institute, the Archdiocese will be contributing $1200 to each participating parish. This is a total savings to your parish of $1400. You will pay just $599, equating to a mere $50 a month! Nowhere else can you find such value for access to so many quality Catholic resources for use in Sacramental Prep, Bible Studies, Faith Formation, Youth Ministry and more. By participating in a coaching session, each parish can also receive a free FORMED banner kit for promoting FORMED at the parish.
For those who are not familiar: A parish FORMED Subscription, created and powered by the Augustine Institute, includes 24/7 access to FORMED for all people within the parish boundaries, including:
- Streaming of video-based study programs that provide real solutions for your adult faith formation groups, RCIA, sacramental preparation, Bible studies, youth ministry, Marian devotion, and more.
- Streaming of full-length feature films, audio talks, audio books and dramas and programs, plus downloading of e-books, designed to ensure that your parishioners can enrich their faith throughout the week.
- Online access to promotional resources and trailer videos. (Printing is not included.)
- Pathways for parish leaders that can be used to guide them in getting the most from FORMED in their area of ministry.
- Live coaching from expert evangelization team members at the Augustine Institute.
- The ability to download content for offline use.
- Ongoing technical and implementation support from the FORMED ParishCare customer service team.
