Children are the Stars of new Catechism CDs St. Joseph's Media, a traditional Catholic publisher, having recently released the acclaimed CD High Mass Recorded Live has just produced two inspiring CDs: an audio book version of their recent publication, The Family Catechism. More than 30 people, most of them children, were involved in the recording. Disk #1 contains 19 tracks of prayers, catechetical instruction, devotions, and server responses. Disk #2 contains 26 traditional hymns so dear to generations of Catholics. A request from a blind woman who could not read the catechism was the impetus behind the two-year project. What began as a simple recording for an individual evolved into a professional digital recording for families worldwide. One of the greatest obstacles in creating the CDs was to contend with extraneous noises during the recording process including lawn mowers, motorcycles, noisy trucks, telephones and dogs. Having an extensive background in sound engineering, Fr. Francisco Radecki, co-founder of St. Joseph's Media, teamed with dedicated families who devoted their time and voices, to create this inspirational, angelic catechism on two CDs. In order to capture the warmth and richness of a live recording, the hymns were recorded in the church choir loft. The simplicity and innocence of the children (who are not professional singers) resounds through their joyful voices as they sing magnificent traditional Catholic hymns. The music CD contains such famous Catholic hymns as Holy God, Hail Holy Queen, Jesus My Lord My God My All, together with a variety of seasonal hymns used during Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter. The first CD has 19 tracks of prayers, and instruction on the Catholic Faith for all ages. This includes preparation for confession, First Holy Communion and Confirmation, the Stations of the Cross, altar server responses and other devotions. The Family Catechism Audio Book will be a tremendous learning tool for families and make a wonderful Christmas or birthday gift for that special child or grandchild. By listening to these CDs, children and adults alike will be able to better learn about their Catholic Faith. Proceeds will be used toward the acquisition of a new K-8 building for St. Joseph's Parish School.
