The Faith and Life religious education series was written for both school and parish use and is now in its Third Edition with separate manuals for the teacher in a daily classroom setting (Teacher's Manual) and the catechist in a once a week classroom setting (Parish Catechist Manual). There is a Family Guide for parental involvement in the ongoing religious formation of the child while the student uses both a Student Textbook and a separate Activity Book

The Faith and Life Third Edition series presents Catholic teaching using the time-tested ecclesial methodology and spiral development of catechesis, in a beautiful, student-friendly, comprehensive format.
