Church Library

Did you know that we have a wonderful library in our church?

It is located in the church narthex, as you come in the main doors of the church it is to the left.

We have a great selection of books covering: theology, saints, and growing in faith.  We also have several movies available.

Just last week someone donated a few excellent books for the library, they include:

  • Why We’re Catholic – by Trent Horn
  • Where is That in the Bible – Patrick Madrid
  • He Leadeth Me – Walter Ciszek
  • A Heart on Fire, Rediscovering Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus – James Kubicki
  • Death on a Friday Afternoon – Richard John Neuhaus
  • Confessions of a Mega Church Pastor – Allen Hunt

And these are just some of the new books, not to mention the dozens of great books that were already in the library.

Please sign out the books or movies you borrow so we can keep track of which items are in or out.

Unfortunately, it seems that reading is becoming less and less common in our world as we tend to watch everything on our tv’s or phones.  However, books are very important for several reasons.  1) They allow us to study and think at our own pace.  2) They can include much more information than a show on tv or a YouTube video.  3) Our minds process information differently through books than through digital media, and there are studies that show that we retain information from books better than through digital media.

For all of these reasons, and simply because we have so much good content in our library, I encourage everyone to make use of it being here.  I believe that if every Catholic read one spiritual book each year it would help set our hearts on fire even more with love for God.  I encourage you to check out the library and choose a book today.  The library is here for you!  Please make use of it!

You are in my daily prayers.

God bless you,

Fr. VanDenBroeke
