New Year's Resolution: 2018

Read the Catechism in a Year!

Did you know that the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) turned 25 this last October? In honor of this milestone, we are sending out this challenge to all parishioners of the Churches of Western Grays Harbor and Forks - to read the Catechism in a year. With just a few paragraphs every day, what seems daunting is now doable! There are printed schedules of the daily readings in the vestibule of each church. Or you can print out a copy of the schedule here:

Catechism Schedule

If you don’t have a Catechism, we urge you to get one. The Catechism is also available online at the USCCB website:

Online Catechism

Here’s another suggestion: gather a group and discuss what you read. You cannot pass on to others what you do not know yourself. So . . .

Know the Catechism--Trust the Catechism--Live the Catechism--Share the Catechism
