Course: Catechism Level 2

Course description:

This is Level Two of a five-part catechism series (Primer and Levels One through Four) for elementary and high school students.   This Level Two is a noticeable step up from Level One - not only in the concepts, but in the many important details.

The study of catechism is so very important.  Catechisms are an excellent summary of the most important truths of our Faith, and these truths should be memorized by the student.  How many Catholics adults have avoided pitfalls and losing their Faith thanks to having carefully memorized their childhood catechisms?  

The broad overview of this course is "What to believe (the Creed)"  and  "What to do (the Commandments and Sacraments)."  Most solid Catholic catechisms, including that used in this course, condense Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas into a simple question and answer format. 

Catechism in general, however, is necessary but not sufficient preparation for facing the trials, temptations, doubts, and scandals this sinful world will expose the student to.  It is necessary to study catechism because everyone needs the "Catholic answer" to avoid going wrong, even if they do not completely understand or cannot defend that answer.  But catechism is not sufficient; the Catholic student should move beyond catechism and learn the "why" of the answers.   These answers are understood more fully in our Catholic Apologetics and Papal Encyclical courses.

This Level Two course is suitable for the elementary school student (grades 6 - 8) or for the high school student who wishes to review or who is a bit behind in catechism.
