Program Overview

Each workbook is divided into four sections that mirror the Catechism of the Catholic Church: Our Catholic Beliefs, Our Catholic Celebrations, We Live Our Life in Christ, and We Catholics Pray. These books are ideal for primary- and intermediate-aged children to use in a variety of ways, either in a parish/school setting, or home, for the following:

  • Building Catholic identity and literacy as well as doctrinal knowledge
  • Supplemental activities that catechists or parents can use to supplement existing religion programs
  • “Catch-up” catechesis when children need additional review or introduction to the basics

Knowing Our Catholic Faith is a bilingual, supplemental resource for children ages 5 to 10.
