Religious books play a special part in the life of a Catholic. Books on spirituality and religion play the same role for Catholic adults as refresher courses do in the professional lives of lawyers, doctors, and business professionals. We always need to update ourselves in the areas of our lives which are most important. And nothing is more important than our relationship with God. There is a rich intellectual tradition in the Catholic Church which books and journals of Catholic thought reveal for the adult Catholic.


Open before and after the Saturday evening and Sunday Masses.


The bookstore is located on what used to be the old baptistery at the vestibule of the Church, west of the main entrance.

Volunteers from Fr. Leo’s Monday Bible Study group work in the Book Store sales.

Books by, or about well-known figures such as Mother Teresa, Thomas Merton, and various Saints are also available. There a fair collection of religious books for children is featured. A few religious items, such as rosaries, are also offered, as are note cards for all occasions. Jewelries, some of them made by our own parishioners could also be purchased. CDs of traditional and contemporary Catholic music as well as DVDs mostly on lives of Saints are also available for purchase.
