I have just written to an Eastern Rite priest to ask him about a catechism. As soon as I hear from him, I'll send the answer on to you!

The Catechetical Directory of the UGCC was published in 2000 and is available from several sources, including the St. Josaphat Eparchy's bookstore http://www.stjosaphateparchy.org/Store.html

The UGCC Catechism is being developed by the Patriarchal Catechetical Commission led by His Grace Bishop +Peter (Stasiuk).

Until then there is no official catechism, although in English the most often used is Fr. Casimir Kucharek of blessed memory's Our Faith and The Sacramental Mysteries: A Byzantine Approach. Fr. Casimir was a priest of the Eparchy of Saskatoon. These are solid books and still hold up quite well; I brought my older kids up with these.
