The Knights of Columbus has been involved in evangelization since it was founded. In 1948, the Knights started the Catholic Information Service (CIS) to provide free Catholic publications for parishes, schools, retreat houses, military installations, correctional facilities, legislatures, the medical community, and for individuals who request them. They ask that the reader covers the cost of postage. Their website is full of information we can all benefit from.
The Luke E. Hart Series provides a systematic introduction to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The author, apologist and philosophy professor Peter Kreeft, offers an explanation in everyday language of each area of Catholic belief and practice.
Podcasts of the Luke E. Hart Series booklets (based on the Catechism ) are now able to be heard on your computer or downloaded to your mp3 player. You can subscribe to these free podcasts for your PC or Mac computer. By subscribing to our RSS feeds through an RSS reader, you’ll receive a summary of our new content as soon as we post it. An RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed is a regularly updated summary of Web content, along with links to full versions of that content.
