Saint Anthony Mary Claret patron saint of catechesis in Cuba

The brochure SAN ANTONIO MARIA CLARET PATRONO DE LA CATEQUESIS EN CUBA (SAINT ANTHONY MARY CLARET PATRON OF CATECHESIS IN CUBA), has the purpose of making Claret a little more known in his role as Catechist to the nearly 5,000 catechists in Cuba.
