Diocese of Spokane: Weekly Update March 20th
Why this email?
Normally this email only goes to those who opt-in. Given the present circumstances, the diocesan update email is being sent diocese-wide one time only to allow others to opt-in. Normally the email has a bit of faith formation content and upcoming events. While public Mass and events are canceled the email will focus more on resources.

FORMED Available for All in the Diocese
The Augustine Insititute has extended the FORMED platform to all Catholics in the Diocese of Spokane for the next 40 days. FORMED is a streaming platform similar to Netflix but with Catholic content. Some parishes already pay for this service for their parishioners and can continue to log in as normal. For those who don't have FORMED this is an opportunity to learn more, be inspired and grow in faith.
Informational series like
(see the trailer below) will help your desire for the Eucharist grow, movies like
Clare and Francis
will help you be inspired by the saints, and the children's animated features can help your children learn the faith while watching TV.
Sign-up for FORMED
New Issue of the Inland Catholic is now available!
Stay in touch with your parish!
You are probably signed up for your parish Flocknote if you are getting this email. If not, click the link below to find your parish.
Encourage your friends and family to sign up for their parish flocknote too. If your parish or your friend's parish does not have Flocknote then make sure your parish has your correct phone number and email address. Staying connected is important, now more than ever.
Maybe even consider offering to call fellow parishioners for your pastor. The outreach we can offer to our fellow parishioners can help keep spirits up. Especially for those who live alone.
