  • Live in Chicago,went 12 years Catholic schools, am 63 and need Catechism classes. Is there classes for 'Fallen away' Catholics. I had to teach myself how to say the Rosary because it seems so different now as other things do. Dont want classes for a person thats never been a Catholic unless thats all there is.
