Evangelization and Catechesis

Anticipating the announcement of a new Vatican office to promote the New Evangelization, Jesuit Father Joseph Fessio's Ignatius Press and the UK’s Catholic Truth Society (CTS) have launched a program to make the Catholic faith more widely-known throughout North America.  This new joint international apostolate will conveniently and cost-effectively provide CTS’s popular booklets to parishes and other Catholic outlets.

Some People Know Less Than They Think They Do

Evangelization and catechesis are two key elements of the Church’s mission today, according to many observers, but the Church faces a number of obstacles to carrying out her mission.  Many people do not understand Christianity but they think they do.  Some think Catholicism has been discredited by recent scandals. Ignatius Press and CTS are helping parishes, other Catholic groups, and individual Catholics counter mistaken ideas about the Catholic Church by using CTS’s highly-readable, cost-effective booklets, which cover Catholic doctrine, morality, prayer, and various hot topics of current discussion.
