I’m not a theologian, and I’m not a Saint. I’m just an ordinary guy who loves Jesus and the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

My name is Taylor Engel.

I’ve been married to my beautiful wife Janelle for about 5 years and we are blessed with three crazy (but amazing!) little children — ages 4 years, 3 years and 10 months. We’re also expecting baby number four! (Please pray for us)

Besides my roles as husband and father, I work by day as a Catholic high school theology teacher and study by night as a graduate student of the Augustine Institute.

Yes, life can be very busy… But I’m blessed with an amazing little family and wouldn’t trade them for the world!

I created The Catechism Guy.

I started The Catechism Guy out of a longing to share the truth of the Catholic faith with as many people as possible.

So many Catholics have been unable to receive the catechesis they deserve and it’s led many to walk away from their faith.

My prayer and hope is that The Catechism Guy can play a small part in providing Catholics with a solid catechesis based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

I’m on a mission.

I’m on a mission to make the truth, goodness, and beauty of the Catholic faith, particularly as it’s expressed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, known and accessible to as many people as possible.
