This is the English translation of the Catechism of the Catholic Church for the United States. It clearly outlines Catholic beliefs on the most important matters in life: God, creation, love and marriage, children, life and death, and the afterlife, just to name a few. Also addressed are matters of utmost importance to our faith, such as the Church, sacraments, Mary and the saints.
The second edition includes corrections promulgated by Pope John Paul II on 8 September, 1997. The corrections to the English text of the Catechism of the Catholic Church were made to ensure it is in harmony with the official Latin text promulgated by Pope John Paul II on the same date.
Whether you are preparing to enter the Church, a life-long Catholic in need of a good reference, or seeking to help someone answer questions, the Catholic Catechism is a beautiful resource, rich in information and a valuable tool to understanding the faith.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We completed the “Chapter House” in 2023 to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
