Create a PLAN

Use the PLAN acronym and the Parish Manual to integrate FORMED into all areas of parish life, helping different audiences in your community utilize FORMED.

Programs – Integrate FORMED into the current catechetical programs and ministries in your parish
L ay Evangelization – Raise up an army of lay evangelists who will be trained to build, lead and multiply small discipleship groups
A ccess in Homes – Get as many parish users as possible to develop the daily habit of accessing FORMED in their homes, cars, or anywhere they can
N eighbor Outreach – Engage neighbors within your parish boundaries by offering access to FORMED and an invitation to learn more about the faith

Check out the Training & Webinars library for more ideas on how to bring FORMED into your whole parish.

Continue to Promote

Ongoing promotions are key to helping your parishioners develop holy media habits.

Here’s how you can do this:

Run a Parish-Wide Study

The aim of a Parish-Wide Study is to help Catholics build holy habits of faith formation as individuals, families, and in small groups. Through the personal invitation of the Pastor and promotional materials, the Parish-Wide Study will not only drive engagement, but foster faith sharing among parishioners who are studying and discussing the same content at the same time. Utilize the programs that are in both English and Spanish to strengthen ties between English-speaking and Spanish-speaking communities in your parish. Parish-Wide Study promotional materials are currently available for the following programs: Symbolon, ANIMAReborn, Forgiven, Beloved, Divine Mercy, and The Wild Goose.

Start Discipleship Groups

The benefits of small discipleship groups are many: fellowship, support, testimony, accountability, and formation, to name a few. Discipleship Group guides, designed to foster faith sharing, growth, and accountability, are available for a number of programs on FORMED for both teenagers and adults. In addition, we have promotional materials available for many individual studies.

For practical guidance on how to launch and maintain small discipleship groups in your parish, watch this inspiring talk by Fr. Gregg Pedersen:
