Publishers of catechetical materials from pre-school level, through high school, and adult programming have provided the Diocese with copies of their materials for use by parishes who are considering a new series or program. Contact the Office of Evangelization & Catechesis at (608) 821-3160 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to access the collection. An OEC staff member can also to advise on the strengths of the various publications.
Please note that it is diocesan policy that the religious education programs of Catholic schools and parishes select their textbooks from an approved list of options. At present, that list consists of all texts which have been found by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' committee to be "in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church." A list of such texts can be found on the USCCB website at this link: http://www.usccb.org/catechism/document/Currentlist.pdf
(For some interesting background on how the conformity list is created, click here.)
