YOUCAT receives 'positive response' from parishes

Archdiocese sold 12,500 copies of the 'multi-purpose kit' for catechism in only three months

Here's Alistair Burns' story explaining YOUCAT's impact on the Archdiocese of Vancouver:
While YOUCAT may not crack the New York Times bestseller list anytime soon, the Archdiocese of Vancouver has sold an impressive 12,500 copies in only three months.

"Originally I thought we could easily distribute 10,000," said Patrick Gillespie, Director of Catechetics in the Archdiocese of Vancouver.

He placed "three separate orders" (two in September and one in October). "Each sold out very quickly; actually each successive order went faster."

Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, has touted YOUCAT, the short form for Youth Catechism, in his travels to local parishes as an accessible way to approach the faith.
