The Luke E. Hart series provides a systematic introduction to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The author, apologist and philosophy professor Peter Kreeft, offers an explanation in everyday language of each area of Catholic belief and practice.

The Veritas series is an expanding collection of booklets covering matters pertaining to Catholic faith and life. There are various authors exploring subjects from prayer, the Eucharist, Islam, and angels to the Church's teaching on Same Sex Attraction, dating, suicide and others. Like the Hart series, the point is to give basic, reasonable and verifiable information by which we live our lives according to God's plan for us.

A Guide to Praying the Rosary is available in English, French and Spanish, this guide shows a person how to pray the Rosary. This guide includes scripture passages and images associated with the mysteries of the Rosary, the prayers of the Rosary and a method of praying the Rosary.

Podcasting the Kingdom is an audio evangelization series. Its objective is to make Christians and those interested in Christianity aware of the mission placed before us by Jesus Christ to bring His voice of salvation to the world: "I am the way, the truth and the life" (Jn 14:6). Each program in series speaks of Jesus Christ and the work of the Church, His sacrament. By baptism and by conviction, we are called to make disciples of all nations.

Why does CIS offer Catholic Information?
Since its inception in 1948, CIS has been spreading the good news about Jesus and His Church by offering Catholic information to anyone interested. Back then, the main goal was to dispel the ignorance that frequently fuelled anti-Catholic sentiment. Today, CIS continues to pursue its mission of evangelization by making it easy to get trustworthy information about the Catholic Church.



O Mary, Mother of the Unborn, protect the gift of human life which your Devine Son has allowed to be given. Give strength and joy to all parents as they wait the birth of the precious child they have conceived. Give courage to those who are fearful, calm those who are anxious, and guide us all with your motherly care, to treasure and protect the miraculous gift of human life. We ask this through your son, Jesus Christ or Lord. Amen.

          Mary, Mother of the Unborn, Pray for Us.
