May 7, 2017 – A View from the Rectory Window

By now I hope you have explored your gift of a subscription to FORMED, a wonderful website that as I mentioned at Mass may be likened to a “Catholic Netflix.” FORMED has inspiring movies, video-based programs, audio presentations and e-books from the Church’s most compelling speakers and authors.

My hope is that FORMED will become a significant asset:

  • For those who would like to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • For those who know someone who has fallen away from the Church, perhaps a friend, a family member, a co-worker, and you want to reach them but just don’t know how.

This is why our parish has invested in FORMED so that each of us might grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ and in our desire to share our Faith with others, especially those closest to us.

With your free 24/7 access to FORMED on your television, phone, laptop,  ipad, or Kindle, you can (to name just a few of the innumerable offerings):

  • Prepare for Mass each week by watching an insightful five-minute video on the Sunday Readings;
  • Enjoy movies as a family that are both nourishing and entertaining;
  • Enrich your marriage with the award winning video program BELOVED; and
  • Help your children grow in faith and character with engaging children’s materials.

To start visit  after you login, I encourage you to go to PROGRAMS and watch the first episode of FORGIVEN. I am confident you’ll be amazed by the quality of the program and how moving the video is.

Fr. Pete
