Why does hockey have so many rules? Do we still need to have penalty boxes? Can’t we get rid of off side? Anyone involved in hockey-players, parents, fans-would never take any of these questions seriously. Without the rules, there would be no hockey. And without the drills there would be no thrills. And yet Catholics ask similar questions about the Church all the time. Why does the Church have so many rules? Why do we have to go to confession? Why do we need priests? The Catechism of Hockey is one of the most unlikely, but effective Catholic resources for the New Evangelization.
