Religion Meets Technology: Catholic Ingredients theology course comes to a laptop near you



In response to decreasing membership numbers among Catholic young adults, marketer and theology teacher Ryan Bilodeau has launched a web course designed to bring Catholic teachings to anyone with an email address.

Catholic Ingredients, a project meant to aid Catholics hoping to cement their understanding of fundamental Church teachings through weekly emails sent right to one’s inbox, hopes to be completed by the end of the year.

Ryan Bilodeau, an author and high school theology teacher in Concord, NH, has created Catholic Ingredients, an email newsletter, to help everyday Catholics learn about the Catholic faith. He commented, “A recent study has shown that human beings have the attention span of a goldfish. In this globalized world, people are busier and working more hours than ever before. And these days it seems like even God is competing for our attention. My hope is that the Catholic Ingredients newsletter will meet people where they are and bring them back to the faith in the process.”

Mr. Bilodeau undertook this project as an aid for Catholics hoping to cement their understanding of fundamental Church teachings and out of a sense of responsibility because of the importance of the Gospel and the spreading thereof. As Jesus tells us, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

Catholic Ingredient lesson plans apply accessible theology to contemporary Theological topics. The course goes beyond the surface in offering rich Theological commentary and sources. Those enrolled in the course and who have Theological questions will have access to instructors.
