The Catechism in a Year

We hope you have received your gift from the parish that we gave away at our Christmas Masses – a Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC)!*
The Catechism of the Catholic Church, is a complete summary of what Catholics throughout the world believe in common.

In addition to receiving the CCC, we invite you to discover even more about our faith by following along with Fr. Mike Schmitz, as he guides us through the entire CCC in 365 episodes (1 episode per day, approx. 15-20 minutes each), providing explanation, insight, and encouragement along the way. The Catechism in a Year podcasts with Fr. Mike Schmitz will include the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Each episode will cover a section of the Catechism, highlighting key sections, explaining the context, and showing how to live out the teachings of the Catholic Faith in daily life.

“I strongly urge everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to learn more about our Catholic faith.”
-Fr. Steve Wertanen, Pastor
