Welcome to St. Anne's Helper!
Let's take a tour of our catechism resources.
We have wonderful Catholic Baltimore Catechism resources for schools, homeschool, and converts. You'll find Communion and Confirmation:
Generally, we use the full title Saint Anne's Helper, yet many search for our site using the abbreviation, so this page is meant for you.
St. Anne's Helper Audio Catechisms use the clear and concise 1880s - 1950s Baltimore Catechism for
How can an audio recording help you learn the catechism?
Review. Review is what most of us need when studying. Now you have a helper whether you are learning or teaching.
At St. Anne's Helper the material is the Roman Catholic Baltimore Catechism, the questions and answers are on separate tracks and can be repeated until the answer is memorized.
The exact same material is available on both audio book downloads and Catechism Copybook Ebooks - booklets with the questions and answers or copybooks for copying the catechism answers.
The CDs are reusable, they are portable, and they are easy to use. The CDs and the downloads have the same information and can be used as Catholic audio books and as Catholic Ebooks. If you have an eReader, you can study the minimum knowledge necessary for the sacraments of the Holy Eucharist and Confirmation.
Catechists are thrilled to be able to recommend the CDs for parents to use as review with their children; and parents are thrilled to have the tutorial help teaching their children such catechism answers as the Ten Commandments and the Catholic Prayers.
[Update: Through recent years we have been able to offer instant audio digital downloads of these same CDs. See below for corresponding worksheets, ebooks, and coloring pages.]
First Communion (Vol. 1 Baptism - Holy Eucharist) Learn the Catholic Ten Commandments, Apostles' Creed, and Baltimore Catechism answers for First Communion as Mary reads the questions and answers for you to practice or simply listen and learn.

Many real life decisions depend on the truths of the Catholic Religion so it is good to have a short version of the basic truths memorized for future reference. That's why the Baltimore Catechism is so popular.
Oh how frustrating it is to have different catechisms through the years and to try to undo what had been memorized previously just to get a good grade on a test, even though the first version might have been a better answer.
The Catholic Church's habit has been to use the same phrases throughout a particular catechism series and to print only what was certain.
We have kept this habit by using the words from the Baltimore Catechism for your edification and ease of use. It is so much easier to learn a definition right the first time so that it is the same throughout the years.
St. Anne's Helper has Catholic catechism ideas that correspond with the Baltimore Catechism, the favorite catechism of catechists and homeschoolers.
The old Baltimore Catechism has the longest history of approval and use in the United States and it is generally sold in several booklets.
An audio Baltimore Catechism covers all of the Baltimore Catechism No. 1 answers, as well as the main Catholic prayers for children.
Catholic religious education and Catholic home school books abound these last years.
Many more Catholic book publishing companies are writing books for Catholic homeschool and are providing many Catholic books as audio book downloads.
Catholic audio books and Catholic ebooks are easy to buy and easy to use. They've been a huge help in our family from learning the catechism, to reading the Douay-Rheims Bible, to using CDs and DVDs to learn Math.
The best way to learn some of the virtues is to read stories of the saints.
There are so many more homeschool resources now that can really help make learning at home so much easier and better like Catholic homeschool worksheets and Catholic text books.
There are many companies who have developed wonderful Catholic homeschool curriculum including our favorites:
We are a Roman Catholic family that wants to share traditional Catholic treasures that help you, your students, and your children keep the faith.

We have slogged through many books that were called Catholic to find the best Catholic books for teaching the faith.
When we talk to other catechists and parents we find that they would like to have supplemental help with their own Catholic Religious Education programs so that parents have resources at home, too.
They would like to know the best Catholic answers to questions of the Faith in an easy and concise format.
Many of our friends are adult converts and they, too, rejoice to find precise and concise answers in Catholic ebook or audio book format (PDF and MP3).
Catholic schools and parishes have linked to our pages as resources for their students in Catholic Religious Education.
Welcome! And know that you have had our prayers for many years now, because we pray for all of our visitors past, present, and future! In your charity, please remember us in your prayers.
Catholic prison ministries, like the Blue Army, have stocked St. Anne's Helper Audio Books in their libraries for their aspirants who hope to learn the Catholic Faith, too.
Catholic grandparents and Godparents have given these CDs as gifts of faith.
Catholic homeschooling families have used these for their sacrament preparation.
We ask your prayers for their success and preservation in the Catholic Faith. Be assured that we pray for you and yours.
Pope Pius XI says
"...The believer has an inalienable right to profess his faith and to revive it as it needs to be revived. Laws which stifle or make difficult the profession and the practice of this faith are in contradiction with natural law." (Encyclical "Mit Brennender Sorge" March 14, 1937)
Capitalize on this right by studying the Roman Catholic Religion well and help your children do the same.
Once your children know the basic Catholic beliefs, they can make good decisions throughout their entire lives. Add Roman Catholic Bible and saints stories as recommended by the USCCB instructions on the Catholic catechism.
