Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church (YOUCAT)

YOUCAT, the Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, is written in language suitable for young people and deals with the entire Catholic faith. The work is structured in Question-and-Answer format, and numbers after each answer refer the reader to the more extensive and in-depth treatments in the CCC. It discusses:

  • What Catholics believe and why (doctrine)
  • How Catholics celebrate the mysteries of the faith (sacraments)
  • How Catholics are to live (moral life)
  • How they should pray (prayer and spirituality)

The appealing graphic format includes highly-readable commentary, summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations and inspiring and thought-provoking quotes from Saints and others in the margins. YOUCAT may be purchased online from Ignatius Press.
