  1. The Catechist’s Toolbox offers catechists tips, advice, and a methodical approach that will help them succeed as educators of the faith.

  2. Why do Catholics do what they do? Practice Makes Catholic gets to the heart of the question-and to the heart of what it really means to be Catholic.

  3. In A Well-Built Faith, Joe Paprocki makes it easy for Catholics to feel confident in teaching the Catholic faith. He makes complex teachings of the Catholic faith accessible to average Catholics without compromising Catholic teaching and tradition.
  4. Living the Mass:  How One Hour a week Can Change Your Life  In this lively explanation of the Mass, authors Fr. Dominic Grassi and Joe Paprocki are particularly alert to the way the Mass strengthens and renews the baptismal commitment of those who attend.
