The Archdiocese of Baltimore does not recommend a specific textbook series, but rather, recommends a process for choosing an appropriate textbook for the parish community. “How to Choose Catechetical Textbooks: Process and Criteria” published by the National Conference of Catechetical Leadership can be obtained by contacting the Division of Catechetical and Pastoral Formation of the Archdiocese or directly at or by calling 202-636-3826.
