​​St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi Parish has the wonderful opportunity to participate in the resources and presentations of the Augustine Institute’s website FORMED.
 
FORMED is a Catholic web portal, providing access to a rich array of programs, movies, documentaries, shows, talks and eBooks - all of which could enrich both our spiritual lives and also our communities of St. Catherine of Siena, St. Mother Teresa of Kolkata, St. Patrick and St. Theresa.
 
There is top quality programming for Catholics of all ages to inform and engage us deeper in our faith; to assist in preparation for Sacraments; to inspire discussion amongst individual members of the parish and our various group ministries; and to entertain us with videos and shows for all age levels.
