What is the benefit of purchasing the CATHOLICISM Study Program Leader’s Kit?
If you are facilitating the CATHOLICISM Series study program in your parish or with a small group, the Leader’s Kit contains the extra materials to facilitate your program- the extensive answer key, the Facilitator’s guide, the supplementary “Faith Clips” DVD which answers foundational, basic questions about the faith, prayer cards, and Fr. Barron’s CATHOLICISM book. It is an indispensable tool for organizing the program and for resourcing more extensive study within your group.
I donated $250 to Word on Fire this year and received the DVD series as a thank-you for my donation to the ministry. Now, I would like the Leader’s Kit, but I don’t need another copy of the DVD series. Is there a way to purchase the Leader’s Kit without the DVD’s?
Yes. You can now purchase the contents of the Leader’s Kit without the DVD series. It is available here:
Is it really necessary for each student to have their own individual copy of the Study Guide when completing the Study Program?
Yes. In order to properly take advantage of the content of CATHOLICISM, we highly recommend that each individual obtain their own copy of the guide. The Study Program’s success involves four components:
1. Watching the series,
2. Reading the extensive commentary,
3. completing the Questions for Understanding and Questions for Application, and
4. Discussing written answers in a group setting.
Each student needs their own Student Guide to be able to complete all four components. The aim of the CATHOLICISM Series and Study Program is to provide participants and viewers every opportunity to experience the depth of Catholicism so as to pave the way for ever greater discipleship. The Study Guide is a thoroughly researched and developed tool to promote total understanding and retention.
I am facilitating a large group study. Do you provide volume discounts for large orders of the CATHOLICISM Series Study Guide?
Yes, volume discounts are available for large orders. Discounts are listed at the top of the Study Guide page in the WOF web store.
Can I get advice on how to facilitate this program in my parish or small group?
Yes. Program advisors can assist you in planning and facilitating the CATHOLICISM Series study program. You can reach them by calling 800-932-3051.
Where can I find support materials (flyers, bulletin announcements, etc.) to promote the CATHOLICISM series in my parish or small group?
