What’s new in faith formation? Visit us at NCEA
If you’ll be at the 112th annual NCEA convention in Pittsburgh April 22-24, stop by booth 605 for a special presentation of the new Pflaum Gospel Weeklies Faith Formation Program. Matt Lekan, our Midwest regional manager, and other Pflaum staffers will be there to answer your questions about this exciting, liturgy-based approach to children’s catechesis. The program is affordable (less than $12 a year per student), and has been found in conformity with the Catechism.
Coming in the fall: our new bilingual editions
Bilingual editions of What the Church Believes and Teaches, the catechism handbooks that are an integral part of the Pflaum Gospel Weeklies program, will be available for the 2014/15 school year. They are ideal for parishes or schools that need an effective bilingual component in their catechetical program. The handbook for each level covers all the Church teachings that are necessary for that age group. To learn more, click here.
