The lazy, hot days of summer mean time to cool off with a good book.  The Parish Book Store has titles to interest all—both young and not so young.  Among our titles are Let’s Look on the Seashore:  A Spot & Learn, Stick & Play Book for the very young set, Welliewishers: The Riddle of the Robin for ages 5 to 7, The Dangerous Days of Daniel X for teens, and Rachel Held Evans’ Searching for Sunday.  Come see what we have, and while you are here, purchase a bilingual book for the children of the Dos Santos mission on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

The Parish Book Store Book Group's next book is Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others by Barbara Taylor Brown. We chose it because it met our very rigid requirements (less than 350 pages, print dark enough and big enough to see) and, more importantly, it dovetails with the Lenten study book Fear of the Other.  The book is available now in the Book Store; the date of our discussion will be determined, but probably in August. The group is open to all, so please join us.
