tech talk redesign

Whether you’re organizing a parish prayer group or study session, or just learning on your own, Ascension Press offers a unique opportunity to preview its video content. How do you get it? Simply create a free account at Ascension Press.

Your Ascension Press account gives you access to previews of its many video programs, such as “Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother,” Danielle Bean’s “Momnipotent” program, Bible studies, and programs for youth. The previews are long enough that you’ll be able to get a good idea of which program is right for you (and for your group).

Clicking on any of the icons on the menu brings up a capsule description of the program’s focus. What’s shown above is only a small portion of what’s available.

Choose “Join a Study” from the options in your Dashboard, and upon entering your zip code you’ll see a map detailing the Ascension Press studies planned for your area. I found several studies less than 10 miles from my home. It’s easy to click through from there to get more information and even sign up online.

You can also sign up to lead a study from this dashboard.

This is a user-friendly and clever way to learn more about the many study options Ascension Press offers, and it’s a bonus to be able to connect with other Catholics in nearby parishes who are participating in these study groups.
