The Subcommittee on the Catechism assists the bishops, both collectively and individually, in fulfilling their role as chief catechists in their dioceses. The primary work of the Subcommittee on the Catechism is the implementation of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This work is accomplished through the review of catechetical materials as to their conformity to the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The Conformity Review process is outlined and provided as a reference for catechetical publishers. The Conformity List is a cumulative listing of catechetical texts and materials which are in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and are currently available from publishers. The Conformity Listing is updated on a regular basis.
As of October 8, 2013 the following texts and series have been found to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church by the Subcommittee on the Catechism, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Click here for the list of approved texts.
