Catechism and Controversies

Host – Msgr. Michael Wrenn

The Catechism of the Catholic Church issued in its present form contains an authentic statement of the faith in its fullness.

Michael Wrenn examines the inner workings behind the publication of the new Catechism of the Catholic Church as well as several problems found in today’s religious education efforts.
