How can I get the most out of FORMED?
The educational and spiritual formation opportunities are almost endless, and the site is regularly updated and enriched with new material. The user would do well to narrow a search depending on interest, time available, medium and content. It might be a 15-minute guided prayer or a full-length movie, discussions of human dignity and discipleship for youth groups, or an explanation of the doctrine of the Trinity. It is often used in sacramental preparation sessions, including baptism and marriage.
