  • You pay no shipping and handling charges.
  • You don’t have to wait weeks for delivery or pay extra for overnight shipping; you can download and use what you’ve ordered instantly (custom orders excluded).

Catholic Digital Resources™ is a green company!

  • No energy resources are required for the manufacture of CDs and DVDs and packaging materials.
  • Since there’s nothing to package, there’s nothing to be tossed into the garbage after your order arrives.
  • There are no CDs and DVDs to lie around or toss out (or to double as shiny coffee cup coasters) after you’ve copied their contents onto your computer.
  • No trees are cut down and no paper is manufactured for use in our books. You can read them on your computer.
  • When you make print-outs, there’s no waste: You print only as much as you need, on an as-needed basis.
  • No delivery vehicles means that no fuel is used and there are no emissions polluting the air.

Beth Solis, a group facilitator in Oklahoma, says, "Our members asked us in the beginning if we minded taking things slowly so we could have time to really discuss each paragraph. We always have such great discussion! The PPT has been very helpful and is a nice addition."

Feedback from a study group in Florida

Sylvia says, "This experience deepened my love for the Eucharist in ways I couldn’t imagine when we first started this course."

Tim says, "Being the only convert in the group, I ascertained a better and stronger understanding of the importance of the Eucharist, not only in the Mass but also in my daily life."

Jimmy says, "I learned so much about the Eucharist that was powerful and enlightening. This course helped deepen my faith and my appreciation for the Holy Mass."

Erin says, "It was amazing to get everyone’s perspective on the readings. And it deepened my love in the beautiful gift that the Eucharist is to all humanity for our salvation."

Shirley says, "This course was so enlightening. It was a gift that helped me grow in my faith."
