Free e-books, study guides, printables, and more

Inspired by the mission of our founder, Fr. John Francis Noll, we want to help Catholics learn about and live their faith and be a shining light of truth in the world. That’s why we create many free items that you can download to your computer or mobile device for personal reflection, to share with others, or to use in a group setting. Check our free page often for updates. 


Learning to simply love the Faith

Simply Catholic is an amazing online resource and community that has a simple purpose: to help Catholics know and love the Lord and his Church so that they may be equipped to share their Catholic faith with others. The website offers articles and series on topics from Scripture to theology to the basics of the faith. And, since it’s a ministry of OSV it’s content you know you can trust. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook.


For Catholic families who love their Faith

Teaching Catholic Kids, from OSV, is a valuable online resource for parents. Free downloadable activities and articles are updated each week and made available from the best of OSV books, workbooks and writers. The Teaching Catholic Kids newsletter helps parents plan their week with upcoming feast days, family faith ideas, and printables. Join the growing newsletter list, and follow Teaching Catholic Kids on Instagram.
