Compendium of the Catechism officially released, sells out first 50,000-copy printing

.- The Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church was officially launched at the opening ceremony at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress on April 7. It sold out by its second day on sale.

All parents, students and teachers should use the Compendium as part of their faith formation, Cardinal Roger Mahony told those gathered at the congress. The resource comes in both English and Spanish.

The book went on sale at the weekend conference Friday morning. By mid-Saturday morning, all 1,500 copies of the book at the conference were sold out. About 50,000 copies were purchased in pre-sales.

The Los Angeles Religious Education Congress is the largest event of it kind. This year, an estimated 40,000 people attended from 47 states and the District of Columbia, as well as Latin America, Asia, Africa and Europe.
