Yesterday evening, Father Barron and the Word on Fire team presented highlights of the CATHOLICISM series, including the first segment of the comprehensive adult formation program and other supplementary materials, to a group of Bishops at the USCCB Fall General Assembly in Baltimore.
The presentation was well-received, and many of the Bishops present at the reception expressed interest in using CATHOLICISM
as a tool for catechesis and evangelization in their Dioceses. Look for the series and faith formation program at a parish near you next Fall, and please continue to spread the word about Father Barron's unprecedented "new evangelization" project.
Here are some photos from the event:

September 2011 is quickly approaching, and we are excited to make the entire CATHOLICISM series available next Fall. Please pray for the project and the continual guidance of the Holy Spirit as Father Barron and the Word on Fire team enter into these final stages of its production and distribution. Thank you!
