Our Catholic Faith: Know it! Live it! Love it!
About this Book:
Are you looking for a way to accessibly communicate the faith to your kids, but are at a loss for words? Is your older child preparing for receiving the sacraments, but needs to catch-up on their religious education? Do you want to brush up on your knowledge and grow in your faith, especially in celebration of the Year of Faith?
In this comprehensive resource for faith formation, children ages 9 – 12 and the grown-ups in their lives are provided with child-appropriate, helpful, and theologically-correct language to explain the faith...from A to Z! Whether you are a parent, grandparent, teacher, or catechist, this guidebook of all things Totally Catholic offers you an exciting way to share and pass on the faith!
Drawing from the Catechism of the Catholic Church and using "hip" terminology and acronyms such as "BTW" and "VIP," content is presented in a way that reaches out to young people-and even to adults looking for an accessible window into the faith. Analogies illuminate difficult concepts, bolded key terms are defined, and a pronunciation aid accompanies more advanced language. Clip art style illustrations and call-out boxes present the faith in a fun way.
From Bible stories, to the sacraments, to Church hierarchy, to the fruits of the Holy Spirit, this resource covers all bases. It also responds to contemporary societal issues such as abortion, euthanasia, and homosexuality, along with issues that kids might directly deal with in their day-to-day lives such as cheating, plagiarism, and gossip.
Containing extensive information on what Catholics believe and how they live as members within the community of believers, this manual not only equips you with knowledge of the faith, but also encourages you to engage in it. Each chapter is framed in the form of a question and contains the following sections:

What Are People Saying about this Title?
"This text is totally appealing! It is a hands-on approach to the material in the Catechism, an enlivening and Spirit-filled journey of discovery. The beautiful truths of the Catholic faith are presented in an enticing, and interactive style which will be a valuable tool for all."
Sr. Lisette Michaud, S.S.Ch., Director of Religious Education, St. Joseph Parish, Medway, Massachusetts
"[Totally Catholic!] mirrors and translates accurately the structure of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, with its focus on the four pillars of faith... Creative and interesting features sprinkled in... make the reading of this text more conversational and interactive in style."
Father Paul Ritt, Pastor at St. John the Evangelist Parish, North Chelmsford, Massachusetts; faculty member, The Theological Institute for the New Evangelization, Saint John's Seminary, Brighton, Massachusetts
"In Totally Catholic! Sr. Mary Kathleen Glavich covers the tenets of the faith with an engaging writing style. Introducing each topic with a phrase from the Catechism and an overview, she then breaks it open. 'BTW' and 'Did You Know' broaden the readers' understanding and 'Brainstorm' challenges them to make connections. With 'Catholic VIPs' and 'Now Act!' Sr. Mary Kathleen puts flesh on the doctrine. In 'From My Heart' she offers the reader ways to pray the doctrine. Totally Catholic! touches the mind, heart, and will."
