I'm afraid my reply won't be very encouraging.  Importing the CCC
consisted of downloading it in its entirety from either the USCCB or the
Vatican (I forget which), formatting it in OSIS, then running the OSIS to
GenBook importer.  The "formatting it in OSIS" took a long time and
consisted of a lot of manual labor.  The conversion can be automated with
scripts to a very limited degree.  And we can't distribute our copy of the
CCC since it is copyrighted.  It was just done as a demo of OSIS'
capabilities for a conference a year ago at USF.  (I forget the name of
the conference, but it was a big important one--though the demo was done 
for a very small audience.)

Really the only Catholic material we have is the Summa Theologica module.  
Eventually we should have the Catholic Encyclopedia, but there's no 
telling when.
