“We’ve been using the Sadlier religion series We Believe Catholic Identity for many years at St. Agnes Academy. As part of the Boston College dual language program, we began using Creemos Catholic Identity this year which is a perfect option having both Spanish and English in one book. Sadlier offers a very user-friendly website and online materials that I incorporate daily into my lessons. I highly recommend Sadlier and all their great resources.”
"This year I was able to do first communion preparation and we purchased the Believe • Celebrate • Live sacrament program including the My Mass Book and My Reconciliation and Prayer Book. These resources are a great addition to the Sacrament Preparation Program. The kids loved them, and they take their mass book weekly to our school mass. I highly recommend Sadlier and all their great resources."
