July Is The Month Of The Precious Blood

July 1 is the feast of the Precious Blood of Jesus. Do you know that Pope Pius IX instituted this feast in thanksgiving for being delivered from the revolutionaries who had banished him to Gaeta. This is an exciting story to tell the children.

July 2 is the feast of the Visitation of Our Lady to Elizabeth, a great time to tell your children the association between this story and the Joyful Mystery of the Rosary. We have a video that shows the beads for each prayer. Kids love this! They also like Rosary coloring pages.

July 11 is a Feast of Saint Benedict. See coloring pages, prayers and more.

July 26 is the Saint Anne's feast day.

July 29 is the feast of St. Martha. See a Saint Martha coloring page and novena here.

Helping Catholic Schools

We've helped thousands and thousands of Catholics from around the world: missionaries, convents, parishes, catechists,  teachershomeschoolers, and parents.

Helping Catholic Families!

Perhaps you're searching for the Baltimore Catechism basics with no fluff and no error.

  • Perhaps you have many children who could use individual help?
  • Maybe they're at different learning levels?

Sometimes things get a bit overwhelming when you're left to your own resources.

Everyone needs the Catholic faith . . . . You can teach at home. You can also homeschool.

Good news!

Welcome to Saint Anne's Helper catechism resources where we help you teach your children the Catholic faith. 

First? Relax. Seriously, each year or each sacrament usually covers only seventy to ninety questions.

One or two good Q&A catechism lists, a Catholic Bible, and a saints book and you're set.

One fourth of your students will be able to learn the answers without help.

The rest? Watch, teach, and pray.

We are here to help you. You can make the Baltimore Catechism fun and make wonderful memories as you go. You'll know you're in the right place if 

  • You love God and you love children.
  • You need activities to celebrate the liturgy or saints days.
  • You want the Catholic Catechism as it has always been taught.
  • You're past the basic Catholic beliefs and want to know more.

St. Anne's Helper Catholic Catechism Printables

Here's what I've found: Our coloring pages are our most popular product.

Yet here's what goes with them: Our worksheets help you teach the beautiful Catholic faith that goes with the beautiful Catholic coloring pages. Use them both to combine saints, catechism and even penmanship classes. We have now bundled the downloads.

Since the catechism is generally the same throughout the years, you can use these catechism printables for many years to come. Levels?

  • Use the manuscript version with young children.
  • Use the cursive versions to review what your children learned the previous year. The information will always be true.

One danger in having a stack of twelve books for different levels is that so many books make learning religion look overwhelming.

Yes, the material grows in depth, yet it's super helpful at any age to realize that the Catholic Faith is simple and it is the same throughout the years.

You'll use the same Apostle's Creed, Ten Commandments, and prayers; just higher level topics each new year.

Our downloads excel at helping your students review the Catholic catechism beliefs.

How To Start Teaching Catechism Class?

Do your children know the Catholic Ten Commandments?

Do you know them yourself?

They're easy to learn and they cover all of ethics which also covers politics - with absolute certitude, so it's important for all of us to know them.

For a Q&A format with good answers the Baltimore Catechism is excellent during the early school years.

Did you know that the Baltimore was the interim catechism while The Catechism of the Councl of Trent was being translated?

Finding a truly good Roman Catholic catechism is important in today's environment. Every word matters. The Catechism of the Council of Trent is what is known as the Roman Catechism and is excellent for high school and adults.

Why? It's important to final perseverance to "get it right". Certitude helps perseverance.

Catholic Truth. God made us to seek truth, but how can you find and pursue in the Truth with fluffy or compromised books?

Another thing, often in our days, the whole family learns the Catholic beliefs together at the same time. Saint Anne's Helper shows adults the quick way to higher understanding and gives you resources to make it interesting for your children.

The more sacraments you receive, the more prayers you pray, and the better the books that you feed your mind and your children's minds; the better lives you will live.

The goal is a happy Catholic family all together in Heaven.

  • Concise. It doesn't take a ton of books to learn the basics. Once you know the basic beliefs, about 120 questions and answers and about ten prayers, you'll know the backbone of what you need to learn in order to receive the sacraments and to keep the Faith for life.
  • Inexpensive. Non-consumable tutor on tap. St. Anne's Helper helps you and your children learn the Faith: the Apostles' Creed, Ten Commandments, sacraments, and prayers. Add in stories of the Saints and you've got a wonderful program.
  • Easy to learn. Audio recordings and worksheets make it easy for both children and adults to learn the Baltimore Catechism's Ten Commandments, prayers, and the answers for First Communion and Catholic Confirmation.

Why is Saint Anne our patroness? She is the patroness of those who teach their own children. She can help you teach your children or your catechism class about Baptism, the Holy Eucharist, Confirmation, and the general truths with an audio Baltimore Catechism

Pray for Saint Anne's protection for you and for all whom you teach. We do. :-)

Audio Catholic Catechism Downloads

Are you teaching the Faith to First Communicants or those preparing for Catholic Confirmation?

Your students will learn to know, love, and serve God easily using worksheets and the Catholic catechism audio downloads. They're great for memory work!

These downloads can help you teach the basics for catechism class with audio recordings, ebooklets, and coloring PDF pages for Communion and Confirmation preparation.

Buy them now, file them, and use them in just a few minutes.

Would an audio recording make it easier for you and your children to learn the Catholic prayers and catechism answers?

It did for us and many others. Examples:

  • One child could not focus even one on one. Solution? Earphones. The rest was easy.
  • One child simply knew anything she saw. Cool. God's grace. The copywork helped her be able to write the answers; first in manuscript, then in cursive. (Both are included in each download of worksheets.)
  • Many catechists have seen children with no one to help at home. They were able to give them the audio CDs for practice and direct them to our free audio Rosary videos. (It is heartbreaking to see seven to eighteen year old children who do not know the prayers to the Rosary. Videos to the rescue!)

Audio learners will be thrilled to have audio CDs or the same on instant downloads. They're like having a tutor or extra teacher in the house! Go to them here:

Children In Catholic Schools

Are your own children not learning their Catechism in school?

Let's face it. Even when the school makes an effort, many of the programs and books that are used do not teach the catechism facts well.

Others pad the catechism with so much fluff that it is a monumental effort to chug through the books. Be assured that there's no need for that.

Sometimes catechists and teachers simply do not have time for children who need help academically.

St. Anne's Helper downloads to the rescue!

They help you teach religion much easier whether you're in school or at home.
