Welcome to my Webpage

Welcome to this webpage that I have launched to promote my new Podcast CATECHISM WITH FR.NEIL.

I am proposing this as a New Year's Resolution for those who would like to grow in the knowledge of the Roman Catholic Faith. But it is fairly easy to catch up if you start listening later. Alternatively, there is nothing to stop someone starting on any date in 2020 and finishing on the same date in 2021. 

Every day I will post a short (5-10 minute) audio podcast for the 366 days of 2020. In each episode I will read a few paragraphs of the Catechism of the Catholic Church together with a short reflection on the passage we read. In this way we will work through the whole book over the course of a year.

Hopefully it will be an easy way to learn more about the Catholic Faith.

The podcast is available on SoundCloud     and Spotify , on the Apple Podcast Store as well as in theGoogle Podcast Store It is already available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts (search for "Catechism" and "Neil" and it should appear as one of the options).


You can also cut and paste the RSS Feed url directly into your podcast app:

Google Podcasts are available here (and can also be listened to on your computer directly):


If there are any questions on the material we deal with, I can be reached on the Contact tab of this webpage. I mightn't be able to answer everyone individually, but if there are enough interesting questions once or twice a month I will publish an extra Q&A episode of the podcast.

God Bless

Fr. Neil
