Catechism Classes are classes held in person or online to prepare young Catholics, or those who are interested in converting, about the teachings of the Catholic Church. Children are required to attend catechism classes as part of their preparation to receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion and the Sacrament of Confirmation.

The catechism is often used to refer to a book containing the official teaching on behalf of the Catholic Church and used by Catholics to learn about their faith. There are many different books published including the Catechism of the Catholic Church 2nd Edition, the Baltimore Catechism (which is written in a way to for children to understand), the Catechism of the Council of Trent, the Catechism of St. Pius X, and the Compendium to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. In addition, some online based Catholic organizations such as CatechismClass.com exist to present materials from all of these catechisms in a way to holistically teach the teachings of the Church.
