Website Review: Catholic Parents OnLine

A review based on:


Catholic Parents Online has as its mission "to build a network of faithful, dynamic, and informed parents, students, and alumni, committed to working with Catholic schools and other programs of education to ensure the authentic teaching and protection of the Catholic Faith." They are truly devoted to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, the Pope and the Bishops in union with him. They also recognize parents' role as the primary educators of their children.

We can't recommend this site enough. Every parent of school-aged children needs to be informed about which catechetical series are faithfully presenting the teachings of the Church and which ones are deficient. This site does an excellent job in pointing out good catechetical resources as well as exposing the ones to be avoided.
