Catechism Connections for Teens Series

The joys and struggles of adolescent life are as old as Catholicism itself. The Catechism Connection for Teens series contains five books that use real teen characters and the teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to help Catholic young people who are searching out their own answers about life, God, and faith.

The stories, written to reflect the structure of the Catechism, make it easy for Catholic youth ministers, teachers, and catechists to help teens develop those important faith connections. Each book corresponds to a major section of the Catechism, and each story ends with a short reflection that connects it with Catholic Tradition. An appendix in the back of each book helps you identify stories on a particular topic. Ages 10 to 14.
