Most Catholic high schools require a summer reading program for their students in several subjects. But how many schools require reading in the area of religion or Catholic studies?

The website catholicsummer promotes such reading for Catholics of all ages Several suggestions are posted at the website.

More suggestions for summer adult reading can be found at several sources, including the magazine America. Fr. John McCloskey suggests 100 books to form a “lifetime” Catholic reading plan.

It may be too late to reach your students for this summer with some of these great books. But it’s not too late for you to forge a lifetime of reading to support the practice of your faith and ministry.
