Catechism Live

Catechism Live is a live-streamed study of the Catholic faith for adults. It normally runs Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:00pm.

The study text is the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is a summary of Catholic teaching in question and answer form.

Each question is numbered. In our study, we use the question numbers (not page numbers), typically discussing a handful of questions each session.

Participants take part by reading the questions in advance and then by watching the discussion on Facebook, posting their own insights and questions in the comments.

Where can I find the textbook?

This text is available online for free on the Vatican website.

It is also available in paperback and Amazon Kindle formats.

Where can I watch the live stream?

> Sessions can be viewed live on our parish Facebook page.
