The ultimate reference to Catholic doctrine on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad!

The Compendium app features a summary of principles, often in question-and-answer format, contained in the Catechism of the Catholic Church through an easy-to-use, immediate user interface. The Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church in English is a more concise and dialogic version of the CCC.

The Catechism draws from the Scriptures, the Church Fathers, the liturgy and the Church’s Magisterium, and presents an organic synthesis of fundamental Catholic doctrines.

The Compendium can be used as a valuable resource for the formation of catechumens in a group or for an individual. Since the Catechism does not intend to offer a methodology for catechesis or impose a single learning pattern, its content can be used in a variety of catechetical methods and settings with equal value. The Catechism has an inherent flexibility that can correspond to the particular faith journeys of all believers.

The app currently contains the Compendium in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.

Notice: we are working through licensing requirements and this app will be removed from the USA store until or if we can secure a licensing agreement. You may never see the Compendium in the USA store again from anyone so now may be your last chance.
