The Rev. Father W. Faerber was a priest and author of the twentieth century. His comprehensive Catholic Catechism, designed for the parochial schools of the United States, includes hundreds of clear, simple questions and answers which greatly assist the student in learning the Catholic faith. Father Faerber's work was first printed in 1942 by the B. Herder Book Company. It was also published by TAN in 1978, and received the Imprimatur from the Rev. Joseph E. Ritter, archbishop of St. Louis.
