Catechesis aims to bring about in the believer an ever more mature faith in Jesus Christ, a deeper knowledge and love of his person and message, and a firm commitment to follow him… With God’s grace, catechesis develops initial faith, nourishes the Christian life, and continually unfolds the mystery of Christ until the believer willingly becomes his disciple. - National Directory for Catechesis (USCCB)

FAITH AND LIFE SERIES: A Catechetical Series for Grades 1-8 by Ignatius Press

Why Faith and Life series? 

Teachers, Cardinals, Bishops, and even the Pope!  People all over the world love the Faith and Life series!

Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) has mentioned that Faith and Life is "the best catechetical series in the German language."

Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn has this to say:

“For the past two decades, Faith and Life has proven to be an excellent series for religious instruction in schools and family catechesis in the home. I know families who use this faith series and bear witness to the excellent fruit it has brought forth. To all who wish to transmit the faith to children in schools or in the home, I recommend the Faith and Life series as a textbook of refreshing and high quality.”



Hi Father Fred!

I just wanted to send you some trailers of our videos so that you can see the work that our Sisters do. Some of the parishioners have been helping us by taping voices so that we can dub some of our programs in English. There´s a few, but maybe you can watch them little by little (they´re just trailers, they´re not that long).

From the Visible to the Invisible

The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments and HM Television present this production on the Liturgy.

Rediscover (Deacon Corky and Mr. Fuller did voices for us in this program)

In this Year of Faith, rediscover your faith. In these two programs, hear testimonies from philosophers, psychologists, physicists, men consecrated to God, young people, married couples, etc., about how they view the world through faith, their views on the Church, and their ideas on the relationship between faith and the most profound desire of man´s heart: Love.

At the Gates of Zion

In this documentary, as you discover the land where Our Lord lived and walked, discover also the difficult situation of the Christians living there in the present moment. In 1948, the Christian population in Israel was 30%. Now it is only 1,2%. What is the cause of this tragic descent? This documentary contains testimonies from Christians in the Holy Land, pilgrims to the Holy Land, and much more!

The Hour Has Come to Reap

The documentary is centered on Asia Bibi and the harsh reality of the Blasphemy law in Pakistan that is mercilessly taking the lives of many.

The Jasper Wall

In this program, we interview Paul Jacob Bhatti, brother of Catholic Pakistani minister Shahbaz Bhatti, who, on March 2nd, 2011, was killed by terrorists.

A People Set Apart

Every five minutes a Christian is killed becuase of his faith. Martyrdom is not a mere fenomena of the past: It is happening right now throughout the world. In Iraq, Sudan, Egypt, China, India, and other countries, numerous Christians are giving their lives in the name of Jesus Christ. A People Set Apart: The Persecuted Churchgives us a glimpse of this cross that our brothers and sisters are carrying in these persecuted countries.

Summer Encounters

Two boys from Assumption come out in this video from last year´s HM Summer Encounter here in the US
