    Baptism Preparation

    Posted by James Mullooly on Jul 18th 2020

    I teach the Baptism Preparation classes at my parish. Now the COVID-19 is with us, I am conducting the classes virtually. This e-resource is the perfect solution. It is a very low price for our parish to legally share all of these materials with our students. And the material is in some ways better than the old stuff. I can break the classes down into smaller units since the larger booklet also allows you to use parts of it very easily.
