The World Leader in Faith Formation Disrupts the Market Again with Bold Transition to Digital
Catholic multimedia network, Ascension, introduced today one of its boldest offerings in its 20-year history—the morphing of its acclaimed 56 small group faith formation studies to digital offerings, enabling parishes in a COVID world to offer distance learning, in addition to in-person groups. The demand for flexible and accessible online options for parishes and schools is very important during these uncertain and challenging times, and Ascension is ready to respond.
Launched under the campaign banner of “Our Options…Give You Options”, Ascension’s offerings include:
- Small Group Bible Studies: www.ascensionpress.com/pages/bible-studies
- Teen Programs: www.ascensionpress.com/pages/teen-faith-formation
- Adult Catechesis: www.ascensionpress.com/pages/adult-faith-formation
For parishes concerned with carrying out baptisms, confirmations, and marriage preparation, Ascension also recreated its sacramental preparation programs to involve an at-home, self-paced offering. These programs include:
- Belonging (Baptism): www.ascensionpress.com/collections/belonging-baptism-in-the-family-of-god#certification
- Chosen (Confirmation): www.ascensionpress.com/collections/chosen-your-journey-toward-confirmation
- Joy-Filled Marriage (Marriage): www.ascensionpress.com/collections/joy-filled-marriage#certification
Ascension also offers a variety of free online content and live media programs, including Sunday Mass celebrated by Fr. Mike Schmitz (which will resume August 2 and will be available on Facebook), Daily Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet, blog articles on contemporary topics, and weekly podcasts from presenters such as Jeff Cavins, Dr. Edward Sri, Colin MacIver, Danielle Bean.

After expanding from a standard publishing house to a full-fledged, multimedia, faith formation network (and after changing from Ascension Press to Ascension in 2018), the company has worked tirelessly to create multiple formats of Catholic content. With books (including audio), study programs, videos, podcasts, and articles, there’s something for everyone – and every age – looking to learn more about the Catholic faith.
Ascension is a multimedia network and the world leader in the creation and distribution of Catholic faith formation programs and digital content. Over the past 20 years, Ascension has helped nurture the faith of over 10,000,000 people in over 9,500 U.S. parishes through over 50 of its unique Catholic faith formation programs.
