LITURGICAL MYSTERIES--NOT WHAT YOU THINK!

Who doesn’t love a good mystery, and even better if the mystery involves the Episcopal church.  Mark Schweizer’s “liturgical mystery” series features a part-time Episcopal choir master who is also full-time police detective and burgeoning mystery writer.  From The Baritone Wore Chiffon to The Cantor Wore Crinolines, you will be entertained and amused.  The Parish Book Store aims to please, so come by and see what else we have.
