This engaging parish resource from Franciscan Media and Servant Books will help you understand and teach the basic beliefs of the Catholic faith. The I Believe newsletter will help connect parishioners with their faith by taking them step by step through the Catechism of the Catholic Church, beginning in Year One with explanations and reflections on the Nicene Creed. Year two continues the journey with a focus on sacraments.
