ROOTED is a collected study book for you or your group.
It contains seven different studies on seven topics of the Catechism by seven different authors.
Each study on the beauties of the Catechism has either three, seven, or eight sessions or chapters inside it. They’re designed so that each session would be one meeting of your group. This collected study book has over 40 sessions total!
The topics are: the Virtues; Ways to Pray; God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; the Seven Sacraments; the Ten Commandments; the Our Father; and the Beatitudes.
What are the videos like?
The videos offer an in-depth starting point for understanding the depth of each study individually. They are all the way from ten minutes to twenty in length and perfect for showing your community group to root yourself in the subject. They’re very conversational and relatable while exploring the big topics of the Catechism.
What does a single session look like?
Let’s take “Vocal Prayer,” the first session in Ways to Pray. It would be comprised of:
+ a summary of the Catechism’s teachings on the topic;
+ 3 short Scripture passages from Old & New Testament;
+ a 200-300 word reflection by the author;
+ questions for reflection; and
+ questions for discussion.
What’s in a reflection?
We share a personal encounter with this particular teaching from the Catechism and how it has shaped and formed our lives. You’ll hear real talk from real women about the richness of our Faith.
Who’s it for?
You, two girlfriends, or two hundred ladies ages 18+! The format is perfect for community groups of any size. You can read aloud a chapter together as a group, discuss the questions, read it ahead of time and journal about it, or ponder the Scripture verses using lectio divina.
How’s the theology in it?
Our Theological Editor, Susanna Spencer, MA Theology, checks every one of our written products. She references and cross-references and makes sure we are completely in line with Church teaching on the topic. These materials were submitted for the imprimatur but were deemed “reflections” and not “teachings.” We feel confident that they are rock-solid theologically.
