Saint Anne's Helper Roman Catholic catechism teaches what the Catholic Church teaches.
We champion the priests, religious, teachers and parents who teach the Faith to those in their care. Thank you for all the good that you do!
These days everyone can use some help. The challenge is real. Many people do not know the fundamentals of the Catholic Faith.
How do we navigate the omissions, revisions, and unmarked editions? Catechesis, teaching the catechism, is the answer and I am here to help.
The gold standard of catechetical instruction is the Baltimore Catechism. It is a faithful presentation of the Faith in a concise format.
You've come to the right place for:
You print. The children practice. Personalize your lesson plans with easy digital practice worksheets and activities.
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.
We've helped thousands and thousands of Catholics from around the world: missionaries, convents, parishes, catechists, teachers, homeschoolers, and parents.

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
Do you know anyone searching for an adaptive Catholic catechism?
Well, our audiobooks are the perfect solution to helping autistic children and adults know the main truths of the Catholic Faith. Easily. Simply listen and learn.
Some children respond very well to using headphones or earbuds and this makes it much easier on you to teach the children and easier on them to learn the answers.
Seriously; if you know anyone needing our downloads, please direct them to contact me through our contact page and I will send the downloads free as soon as I see their email. There's no need to make learning the Faith hard.
What made me think of this is that I was asked one day about confession for non-verbal children and saw some very good ideas. Confession can be a problem for children with apraxia, meaning that they cannot speak to Father; yet that does not mean they cannot go to confession.
Some ideas were to have the Ten Commandments on cards to keep in a 3x5 box or even a simple Examination of Conscience to circle what needed to be confessed. A simple note works, too, if they can write or if you can write down a word or two. (Do not add names.)
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?
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.
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 goal is a happy Catholic family all together in Heaven.
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. :-)
