Top Reviews From Catechism in a Year Listeners


A Must Have with Catechism in a Year Podcast

"55 years a Catholic and I had never read the Catechism and sadly hadn’t even considered it until I began The Bible in a Year Podcast with Fr. Mike. It was his mentioning The Catechism in Year podcast that woke me up to needing to know what we as Catholics live by. Truly, it feels like it was divine intervention that I found both of these podcasts and Fr. Mike. His passion for both is infectious and has opened a whole new world of understanding for me and feels like it has brought me closer to the Lord and has strengthened my faith."

Must Have

"I purchased the Ascension Catechism in a Year for my family members and myself. I read along and take notes in it as I listen to the podcast. My knowledge and faith continue to grow. I am so thankful for this resource and definitely recommend it! Thank you Father Mike."

—Cathy C.



"Wow, where do I start. Being a newer Catholic the Catechism was sort of over whelming in RCIA. So much to read. I ordered this book and signed up for the talks with Fr. Mike and every day, I can't wait to hear what he is going to say today. The passages come alive. It is like Fr. Mike in your living room sitting across from you talking about all of God's promises. I was hesitant to start this but I now think it should be required reading for everyone, not just the new RCIA graduates. Thank you Fr. Mike Schmitz and Ascension. What a great job."
