Welcome to FORMED!
FORMED is a parish-wide resource made possible by your generous stewardship.
We are excited that Saint Michael Parish has become a partner in an exciting 24/7 on-line web-based digital formation series called FORMED, produced by the Augustine Institute and Ignatius Press. This series is designed to help adults grow in their faith at all levels—how we think, how we pray, and how we live.
Better yet, access is FREE to all parishioners and their families anywhere, anytime on computers, tablets, or phones. Have you wanted to be able to share more with others but felt you were lacking in knowledge? Through this content you will be able to not only learn more about the Catholic Faith but also go deeper and strengthen your own relationship with God. You will learn through beautiful videos, music, and notable Catholic speakers, educators as well as be able to read further on the topics through online links.
FORMED is a game-changer, a real immersion of Faith!

You’ve created an account on FORMED but now it seems the site wants to charge you?
If you’ve already created an account and established a login name and password, whenever you return to the FORMED website, you only need to click the “login” button located at the top right of the screen and then, on the next screen, enter your login and password. If you click in the center and reenter the parish code, you may be asked to establish a personal account for a monthly fee and be prompted to provide a credit card number. If this happens, go back to the initial FORMED page and look for the login button! All FORMED content is free for parishioners, so please don’t establish an individual account for which you will be charged!
