New Online Course: Introduction to Religion and Catholicism
edit_button is pleased to announce the publication of its newest, entirely-online Catholic education program.  Entitled A Step Toward Heaven: An Introduction Religion, the course examines the most important aspect of our lives – our religious faith.  We discuss basic issues – why we need religion, the existence of God and why relativism is wrong. 

After looking at various religions, the author shows why the Catholic Church is the one true religion.   There are lessons on why we need the Catholic Church, the use of philosophy and logic in understanding the authenticity of Catholicism, the Apostles’ Creed, the Bible and Tradition in the Church.  Every lesson opens and ends with Catholic prayers and there are extensive quotations from the Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Compendium and the Catechism of the Council of Trent.   Every section includes beautiful pictures to illustrate the point of the text.  

A Step Toward Heaven does indeed help us to get closer to Paradise as we learn more about the Catholic faith.  This is a book for those looking for faith and for those who want to follow the Catholic religion more faithfully and enthusiastically.

This course is written by Frances Spilman.  Frances is from a small town in Northern New Jersey and attended Catholic schools from 1st grade to graduate school.   She has been a church organist and pianist since the age of 13 and has volunteered as a CCD teacher for many years.  Frances is a Life Runner and has marched in the Right to Life Parades.

Has this book and teacher been approved by competent ecclesiastical authority? Her local Ordinary with an Imprimatur for the Course?

This is an online course - not a book. The programs are endorsed by numerous bishops.
