Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults

Rev. Martin Whelan, Galway Cathedral curate, has been recording a series of podcasts based on The Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults, a resource produced by the Irish Episcopal Conference: CLICK HERE to access the podcasts.

The Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults is a resource from the Irish Episcopal Conference. Designed to complement the Catechism of the Catholic Church, it is adapted for an Irish audience and written in accessible, easy-to-understand language. The Catechism responds to the proposal made by the Irish National Directory for Catechesis, 'Share the Good News', that adult faith development should be given priority at this time.

The Irish Catholic Catechism for Adults presents Irish Catholics with a renewed opportunity to study, reflect on, and live by the faith we profess in the Creed, celebrate in the sacraments, live in the Christian moral life, and deepen through prayer. Each chapter begins with a story or 'Lesson of Faith’, featuring many notable figures from Ireland, such as Edmund Rice, Catherine McAuley and Nano Nagle. These stories and lessons present the richness of the Church’s teaching within the Irish cultural context.
