"The Catholic Catechist's Manual and the Question Book for Catechists by Reverend John A. Hardon, S.J., are sound in doctrine and innovative in method. In these books, Father Hardon brings together the teachings of the Church and the Second Vatican Council. He presents a direct and creative spirituality based on the teachings of our Popes. This course is adapted to our age and our culture."

Bishop Alvaro Corrada, S.J.


From the forward of the Catholic Catechist's Manual:
"This manual is a clear exposition of the teachings of the Church. Written in simple style, it is easy to understand, and it leaves no doubt in the mind as to what is required of us by the Church..."

Blessed Mother Teresa, MC


These three training courses, (Basic Catholic Catechist's Course, Advanced Catholic Catechist's Course, Masters of the Spiritual Life), developed by Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J. could be taken by anyone. The courses were ideal for the training of catechists in parish religious education programs and for anyone interested in deepening his or her understanding of the Catholic Faith.

The courses were developed at the instigation of Pope John Paul II who asked Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J. to organize a catechetical training program for Mother Teresa's Missionaries of Charity. Cardinal Ratzinger, Mother Teresa and Fr. Hardon all met together and the rest is history. Later Fr. Hardon went on to found an association, called the Marian Catechists, so that any committed Catholic could benefit from these same training courses.
