Baltimore Catechism No. 1

by Third Plenary Council of Baltimore Author

(From Amazon): Since the Baltimore Catechism was first launched in 1885, it has proved an incomparable tool for passing on the faith to the next generation. The revival of this Catechism reflects the growing realization among Catholics, that to accept, practice and defend the holy faith, we must first understand and learn its truths. The Baltimore Catechism clearly and concisely explains what Catholics believe. The question and answer format is useful for anyone who wants to grow in his or her knowledge of the faith of the Catholic Church. It is also perfect for parents who want to instruct their children in the fundamentals of Catholicism. This book is a superb teaching tool with 33 lessons, and is appropriate for grades 4-7. Size: 4.5 x 7 This edition has been re-typeset using the text of the 1933 edition originally published by Benzinger Brothers, NY under the Imprimaturs of John Cardinal McCloskey, New York, 6th April, 1885, Michael Augustine, New York 25th July 1898 and Patrick Cardinal Hayes, New York, 26th November 1932.
