The Marian Catechists was originally developed, at the request of the Vatican, by Fr. John Hardon for Mother Teresaâ€™s order. It was so well done that Archbishop Burke partnered with Fr. Hardon to bring this comprehensive catechesis to the world. These teachings are centered on the love of the Holy Eucharist, and marked by both a strong devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, and an unswerving loyalty to the Holy Father as Successor of Saint Peter in the office of Roman Pontiff. We have had a number of parishioners go through the basic and advanced course.
