Core Programmes:

  • Catholicism – recommended as first study as it explores what Catholics believe and why.
  • Catholicism: The New Evangelisation – for leadership groups in parishes or for adults who have been well-formed through other programs. Defines and explains what the New Evangelisation is and why it is important.
