WASHINGTON, D.C., November 13, 2014 ( - An online version of the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults has been released by a committee of the US bishops' conference.
The Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis has made the resource, abbreviated the USCCA, free and available in English and Spanish.

“As more people are turning to the Internet for information, we must be able to provide faithful information about the Catholic faith. The online USCCA provides an opportunity for all people to access Church teaching online, use this resource for research and share with others,” said Bishop David Ricken of Green Bay, Wisconsin, chairman of the committee.

“The USCCA is an especially wonderful resource because it contextualizes our faith within our American culture, and also includes stories of American saints and holy men and women, prayers, reflections and study questions,” Bishop Ricken said.

The USCCA is based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Following the outline of the Catechism, the USCCA walks the reader through the Creed, the sacraments, moral life in Christ and the prayers of the Church. Each chapter contains a story about a saint, blessed, or holy man or woman, a brief overview of the topic, reflection questions and a prayer. Also, included in the appendices are a glossary of Catholic terms and traditional Catholic prayers.

The USCCA online is searchable, printable, and shareable. The table of contents provides easy access to each chapter, and the glossary is included as well as the appendices.
