Welcome to the first “Lawn Chair Catechism” at! This is an opportunity for you to kick back while you study along with us.


We’ll be using Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus by Sherry Weddell as our basis for this discussion.

Every Wednesday morning this summer, from May 29 to August 28, we’ll post a series of  discussion questions from our team here at We’ll also have a link-sharing at the end, so others can participate.

You’ll be able to participate whether or not you have read or are reading the book. Here’s the complete discussion guide and questions (13 pages). If you just want the discussion questions, here they are (2 pages). Note: you can’t leave a comment here, on this page. You need to click through to the actual weekly posts for discussion.

With thanks to Our Sunday Visitor.

Through July 31, Our Sunday Visitor will be offering the book for $10 with free shipping. Through the end of the program, you can order it with free shipping from Our Sunday Visitor. Simply click here to purchase the book from them or pick it up at your nearest Catholic bookstore.

Participate locally.

Are you interested in using this for a study in your parish or within your community? We have the discussion questions available in a two-page handout, as well as a complete study guide in a 13-page format.

Here’s a sample bulletin announcement and a flyer which you’re welcome to use.
