    NEW BOOK IN STOCK

    The Eight Doors of the Kingdom, Jacques Philippe’s Meditations on the Beatitudes outlines for us the astonishing promise of everlasting happiness, far removed from the usual recipes for gratification. We learn how each beatitude gives insight into how we can situate ourselves in an honest and fulfilling relationship with God, ourselves, and others, and how to confront head-on the difficult realities of life.

    Help your children celebrate this Easter season with activity books and crafts such as The Story of Easter Magnet Book, The Easter Paper Chain Set, Into the Sea, Out of the Tomb by Maura Roan McKeegan and The Easter Story by Rev. Jude Winkler
     
    April is the month devoted to The Holy Eucharist. Stop in the Shop today to learn more about the source and summit of our Christian lives.

This movie shares the story of over 20 people from all walks of life as they journey towards home to the Catholic Church. Watch now by logging in, using our parish code 4H6MNK.
