CatholicSexuality.com is a video-based website devoted to promoting the understanding of authentic Catholic teaching on matters of sex, sexuality, chastity, etc.
It is immensely accessible and offers a great deal of information and support for chaste living.
This page walks you through using the site and also contains this link to give you a video walkthrough.
From their homepage:
Our Lady’s Rosary Makers was founded in 1949 by Xaverian Brother Sylvan Mattingly, C.F.X. on the premise that he would teach people to make rosaries and distribute them freely to missionaries. OLRM provides support, resources, and materials in the spirit of Br. Sylvan’s mission and vision. We are a member driven, non-profit, Catholic lay apostolate within the Archdiocese of Louisville. Our diverse and active members spread devotion through the Immaculate Heart of Mary by making and sharing the Rosary with the world’s spiritually needy.
From their website:

Chastity Project is a ministry run by couple Jason and Crystalina Evert who have spoken to more than one million people on six continents about the virtue of chastity. It is a ministry devoted to promoting purity and the Catholic teachings surrounding it. There are a number of great resources and ways to not only learn about the topic of chastity, but also become a promoter for it.
From the author of catholicmom.org comes another website called the Catholic Toolbox. The target audience for this website is catechists as well as parents who are taking a more structureed approach to home catechisis (may be even officially by enrolling in the parent taught option).
On the site are tons of games and activities for a faith formation session. Some of the terminology needs a little updatind (we are faith formation, not CCD). All in all, however, there are good activities for anyone looking for a way to creatively pass on the teachings of the Church.
From their "about" page:
CatholicVote.org is a lay-led movement of committed Catholics who are passionate about living out the truths proclaimed by Christ and His Church in the modern world. We are joined in this mission by many individuals of other faith traditions (and no faith tradition) because the common good we seek is universal to all men and women of good will.
CatholicVote.org is a community of patriotic Americans who believe our nation’s founding principles are good and true, and worth fighting for. Most of all, we believe in the dignity of the human person from conception until natural death, marriage between one man and one woman, and in religious freedom for all people. We aspire to better apply the principle of subsidiarity in addressing the needs of our fellow citizens. We believe that an authentic Catholic approach to helping those in need is best achieved by encouraging private charitable initiatives, stronger marriages and families, and the flourishing of joyful religion expression.
CatholicVote.org believes in communicating our message with creativity. We have pioneered innovative approaches to Internet activism, employing a broad spectrum of multimedia (high-quality Internet videos) and social media (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter) initiatives.
I think the title sums it up pretty well. This is yet another blog from the mother who brings us Catholic Mom and the Catholic Toolbox.
For all parents and catechists of children with special needs (as well as anyone who wishes to know more about special needs education), this is a good resource.
Another site in which the name says is all. Looking for an activity on virtually anything for your catechetical needs? Check this site out. A little dated in its structure, but still easy to navigate with instructions by the admin (who, btw is the mom from Catholic Mom and Catechist Toolbox).

From the "About" page: "The mission of CatholicCulture.org is to give faithful Catholics the information, encouragement, and perspective they need to become an active force for renewal in the Church and in society, working to shape an authentically Christian culture in a secular world."
This is a site with excellent resources to keep you and your family connected to all things Catholic. I particularly like their Liturgical Year resources and Daily Content. Each day they also post the "collect" of the day. This is a prayer said at the beginning of mass right before the first reading. It is an excelelnt prayer to use as a family and when gathering for any occasion, even simply as a way to spice up family prayer before dinner.
