Explore the Catechism of the Catholic Church through Father John Hardon's in-depth commentary, the Basic Catechism Course. This 17-week study for adults is a clear, detailed exposition of the four pillars of the faith, as outlined in the Catechism: Commandments and Creed, Morality, Sacraments and Prayer. Ideal for those seeking to grow in their faith, and deepen their understanding of the beauty of the Catholic Church's teachings.
Here’s what some recent participants have to say about this Catechism Course:
“A rich source of information to help me understand my faith on a much deeper level”
“Even though it was a challenge, I learned something each week”
“This class helped me dive deeper into my faith, and learn why we do what we do”
“I now appreciate even more the beauty and richness of our faith”
This study contains solid, scriptural insights into the beauty and richness of the Catechism.
