Hart Pamphlet Order Form
If you are searching for God and the meaning of life, or would like to strengthen your faith, the Knights of Columbus offers for home study a series of 30 booklets, the Luke E. Hart Series, providing a comprehensive and basic overview of Catholic belief and practice.

Each of the 30 booklets offers a colloquial and contemporary expression of the content of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The series follows the basic teaching of the Catechism, and seeks to make its contents more accessible, not to substitute for it. The booklets are at times poetic, colloquial, playful, and imaginative; at all times, they are faithful to the Faith.

Instructions: Enter quantities next to the booklets you desire, fill out the order form at the bottom of this page and submit.
 
 
We offer reduced rates for those ordering more than 100 booklets. We send our booklets free of charge to chaplains of veterans' hospitals, military installations of all branches, correctional facilities and to missionaries working in developing countries.
