Journey with us

Fr. Mike Schmitz, host of the wildly popular Bible in a Year podcast, said of the Catechism: “You can’t love what you don’t know.”

Launching January 1, the Catechism in a Year podcast will also be hosted by Fr. Mike.

What is the Catechism of the Catholic Church? Is it relevant today? What does it have to do with me? And as Fr. Mike points out, how can I love this special gift and tool of the Church if I don’t know much about it?

Starting January 1, journey with us at St. Patrick Parish as we deepen our knowledge and love of our Catholic faith by digging into what the Church actually teaches and why – in the Catechism!

What is the Catechism in a Year podcast?

Catechism in a Year is a free daily podcast and reading plan that will guide us through the entire Catechism, complete with encouragement, insights, and enthusiasm that Fr. Mike Schmitz is well known for.

With one short episode each day, you’ll grow in your knowledge of Church teaching and deepen your loving faith. You’ll see how the Church is rooted in Scripture and the wisdom of the Saints.
