"I've been surprised that these last few orders have been going so fast," said Patrick Gillespie, director of catechetics in the Archdiocese of Vancouver. "There's still a huge demand."
On average parishes are ordering 100 copies each at $10 per book.
Gillespie credited part of the demand to families buying YOUCATs as Christmas gifts. He also noted that there could be another spike in orders around confirmation time.
