The Evangelium Course
A Multimedia Course in the Catholic Faith Based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church
Evangelium is a resource which enables all parishes to run courses for adults on the Catholic Faith. It offers an excellent grounding in the full panorama of Catholic beliefs. A modular resource, it follows the same division as the Catechism of the Catholic Church into Creed, Sacraments, Morals and Prayer.
The three components of the course are published by the Catholic Truth Society:
(one per student, containing all the taught material);
(one for each person giving the presentations);
(containing the twenty-five PowerPoint presentations and hundreds of beautiful images).
Evangelium not only teaches about the Faith. It also gives a rich visual experience of the Faith by means of contemporary multimedia technology and over one hundred of the greatest works of art in Christian history.
This second edition, published in 2008, includes an extensively updated Presenter’s Guide complete with over 80 tough questions and model answers and detailed step-by-step guidance for presenting the PowerPoint slides.

The Why? Course
An Introduction to the Catholic Faith in Three Easy Sessions
The Why? Course
The WHY? course is a simple, three-part introduction to the Catholic Faith that is ideal for colleges, schools, parishes, small groups, or personal study. Each session of the course lasts just one hour, including a 25-minute film of Catholic answers to the questions, “Why God? Why Christ? Why the Church?”
The WHY? consists of just two items: a DVD that contains three short films; an accompanying course book that provides transcripts of interviews during the films, background information, questions for further reflection, answers, explanations of key words and a guide to further reading.
Responding to the call for a new evangelisation, the WHY? course supports:
- initial evangelisation
- refresher courses for catholics
- returning catholics
- discussion groups in parishes and schools
- introductions to the faith in marriage preparation
- First Communion parents
- Confirmation preparation
- introductions to in-depth courses, such as Evangelium
The course materials are easy to use and do not require any previous knowledge of the Catholic faith. The WHY? course provides references to Scripture and the Catechism of the Catholic Church for further reading. The WHY? course is a production of the Evangelium Project and St Anthony Communications, in partnership with the Catholic Truth Society.
“I am sure that the Why? Course will prove of great help in touching people who may otherwise have heard very little about the Church’s teaching but who may be open to the impact of Christian witness on their lives.”Most Reverend Bishop Longley, Archbishop of Birmingham
“This is a very helpful and beautifully presented resource.”Right Reverend Richard Moth, Bishop of the Forces
“I very much welcome the publication of the Why? Course. It provides a helpful means of introducing people to the beauty of Catholicism and offers a valuable resource for Catholics wishing to refresh their faith. Our mission to share and to renew the Catholic Faith within our contemporary culture is well served by the Why? Course. My thanks and congratulations to everyone who contributed to this effective response to the call for a new evangelisation.”His Eminence Vincent Nichols, Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster
