For the past 37 years, JP II Resources has supported the USCCB annual themes with the distribution of The Catechist Journal throughout the US.


  In 1985 and following, NCCD, now the National Conference of Catechetical Leadership or NCCL, proudly sponsored and promoted the Catechist Journal saying, "this Journal, in a most effective manner, fulfills the goal of NCCD to support and recognize the parish catechist. This spiritual diary will be a year-long reminder of the response of the Catechist in fulfillment of the unique call to teach as Jesus taught."

This year, JP II Resources continues the tradition, but with its more general, undated journal:

Light of Faith:

A Journal of Good News.

Journal for Catechists
The National Theme
of the US Catholic Bishops Conference for 2020:

"I received from the Lord
what I also handed on to You."

The Light of Faith Journal is offered for 2020 for evangelists, catechists and teachers, parents and families, parish leadership and faith groups, pastoral ministers and anyone striving to live as a missionary disciple. 
This year's Journal is undated and incorporates a more general theme in order to address the diverse needs of parishes in commissioning various ministries.
Commissioning Certificates and Pins specific to Catechists are still available.

Churches and Parish Schools have open accounts for easy ordering.

Deferred payment to September available upon request.
