 Evangelium

Evangelium is a resource which enables all parishes to run courses for adults on the Catholic Faith. It offers an excellent grounding in the full panorama of Catholic beliefs. A modular resource, it follows the same division as the Catechism of the Catholic Church into Creed, Sacraments, Morals and Prayer. It is adaptable to different parish situations and can even be led by non-experts when necessary.

How does Evangelium work?

Evangelium delivers the essential elements of Catholic beliefs and practice in concise and stimulating portions, using slide presentations (in PowerPoint®) and illustrated participants’ books. The presentations can be easily led by group leaders whether or not they feel confident in teaching the faith: each module is clearly structured, and the resources offer leaders all the support they will need to present it.
