Faith and Life Catechetical Series

A Faithful and Engaging Catechetical Series

OK, this isn’t so much adult education as it is for children, but your parish may be interested in it anyway. The Faith and Life religious education series presents Catholic teaching in a clear way. It makes use of spiral learning to ensure that important concepts are repeatedly reinforced.

It is excellent for grades 1-8 in Catholic schools, parish catechetical programs, and home schools.

The Faith and Life revised edition series closely references both the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and Sacred Scripture. The teacher’s manuals were updated in 2010 with a new layout, spiral bindings and several added features which will make it easier for teachers to use and implement the series.

Faith and Life Student Texts provide:

  • clear, comprehensive, and exciting presentations of Catholicism tailored to different grade levels
  • catechesis corresponding to the four pillars of the Catechism, covering Catholic doctrine, morality, sacraments, and prayer
  • emphasis on forming young people to live the Catholic faith by balancing affective and experiential aspects of catechesis with a systematic presentation of Catholic doctrine
  • biblically based presentations of salvation history
  • questions and answers that synthesize and distill key doctrinal elements to be mastered by students
  • beautiful, inspirational, and instructive art

Activity Books

  • Designed for classroom or home use
  • Feature creative activities for review, reinforcement, and enrichment of each lesson

Student Texts:

  • have been declared to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church by the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on the Catechism
  • also conform with the Vatican’s General Directory for Catechesis
  • incorporate specific references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church
  • incorporate even more Scripture into the student texts and activities
