Adult Convert Catechism Instructions

A Complete Catechism Course from Fr. James W. Jackson, FSSP

A Complete Catechism Course from Fr. James W. Jackson, FSSP

Dear Catechumen,

Several things will be necessary for you to complete this course and become a Catholic.

  1. You will need a copy of the Bible. If you do not have a copy of the Douay-Rheims edition, please purchase one, or else you can find one on line at this website: http://www.drbo.org/
  2. You will need a copy of the Baltimore Catechism, specifically the The New St. Joseph Baltimore Catechism, Official Revised Edition, Explained by Fr. Bennet, C.P. The lessons are taken from this edition, and I even make comment on the drawings within it.
  3. You will need to contact a priest, with whom you can meet on a fairly regular basis. When you have mastered about five lessons, and memorized the prayers which go with the lessons, set an appointment with the parish priest to test your knowledge.
  4. You will need certain sacramentals, such as a rosary, a crucifix, a miraculous medal, etc. These can probably be obtained at your parish, on line, or at a local Catholic bookstore. It is important that they be blessed.
  5. The lessons are broken into small segments so that in your busy schedule you can at least do one a day. These may be downloaded from our website, and put on whichever device you prefer, and listened to in the car or wherever you prefer.
  6. With each lesson there is a prayer to be memorized and a habit to be acquired. When I say acquired, I mean making a good attempt to do it on a daily or regular basis, as will be made clear.
  7. If you have any questions about what you have heard or read, jot them down, and ask the priest. It is important that these be answered as best as possible, and as soon as possible.
  8. Lastly, at one point in the instructions you will be asked to begin the habit of daily reading of some spiritual work. Here are three which you should purchase:
    • The King of the Golden City, by Mother Mary Loyola.
    • The Imitation of Christ, by Thomas a Kempis.
    • The Introduction to the Devout Life, by St. Francis de Sales.These are by no means the only spiritual works, but they will give you a good start.

    Try to read the King of the Golden City first.

Invitation from the Music Director

“Be ye doers of the word and not just hearers.” These words of Our Lord should ring in every Catholic’s ears. When we participate at Mass this is one way to be doers of the word. An even greater way is to sing, either as a parish or in the choir. In comparison to the doers and hearers are the music listeners and the music makers. Music listeners are people who hear the works and recordings of others and are satisfied with that; music makers are people who sing but not just once in a while. The music makers dedicate their lives to song, even if that’s not their job. They don’t let life’s little circumstances get in the way of making music, they sing and offer it up to the glory of God. It seems pretty obvious that God wants us to be music makers, if not as a choir member then certainly as a parishioner.

The choir is looking for new members! Please consider joining us. Contact our music director, Rick Wheeler at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
