Exploring the Catechism of the Catholic Church


The Catechism of the Catholic Church is a compendium of Church's teaching. Split into 4 parts, it uses the Creed to present and explain what we believe, our Faith. It also explains in detail each of the seven sacraments - their their meaning, signs and effects. The ten commandments are used to present the Natural Moral Law in the light of the Gospel and the words of 'Our Father' to present the basis of Church's teaching about prayer.


During the year of faith in our parish we revisited the 'Catechism...' in a series of homilies. The summaries are now available for download below.


Catechism of the Catholic Church is available on Vatican's website,
alternatively you can buy a paperback copy here.
