Parish Library

In a sense, to be a Catholic means to be a perpetual student – to never stop learning about our beautiful Catholic Faith. To help you learn more about your faith, the parish has established a Parish Library.

The Library is filled with many wonderful books on such topics as God, the Trinity, Jesus, the Church, Sacred Scripture, the Eucharist and the sacraments, prayer, the spiritual life, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the saints, and much, much more.

In addition the Library has a large collection of DVDs and CDs on many subjects of religious interest. Many of them are meant to provide good and wholesome entertainment for your family.

If you have never visited the Parish Library before, we invite you to do so. The Library is located on the second floor of the Parish Office Building. For your convenience, the Parish Library is open:

8:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.
10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

The library is open the first and third Saturdays of each month from 6:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

The library is open when the Parish Office is open.
