Credible Catholic is a new Religious Education programme made available for senior cycle non–exam RE by the Council for Catechetics of the Irish Episcopal Conference.
It is designed for use in Catholic Voluntary Secondary schools in Ireland. An earlier version was written and produced by Fr Robert Spitzer SJ and the Magis Centre (California, USA) in 2018 and has been almost entirely re-developed for the Irish context, in line with feedback from RE teachers and theological advisors in Ireland.
Credible Catholic aims to stimulate discussion, encourage reflection and critical thinking, foster religious literacy, help build community, and nurture faith, and in doing all of these things, to promote student well-being. It is an optional resource that will be very helpful to teachers of Religious Education.
