The school year begins, but a school year fraught with unknowns & uncertainty.  What better time to pray? The Parish Book Store has a number of resources for families to use to pray together. Among our titles are 365 Meditations for Families, God of My Heart: A Prayer Book for Youth and Call on Me: A Prayer Book for Young People. Call for an appointment (757-425-0114) for an appointment to peruse our other titles and items.  Or order from bookshop.org by clicking on the link, clicking on "find a bookshop," and putting in "Virginia Beach, VA." Click on our website there.  The book will be shipped directly to you.

If you are interested in participating in Cameron’s book study of Gifts of the Dark Wood, the Parish Book Store has 10 copies available. We are closed, but you can make an appointment to purchase the book by emailing me (Susan Buchanan msbuchanan@verizon.net) or Marty LaGiglia (martylag@hotmail.com). Payment will be by check or credit card. Please contact one of us if you have any questions. You can also order a copy by going to bookshop.org and clicking on the “find a bookstore” icon in the top right corner. On the next screen, type in Virginia Beach, then click on our website. Gifts of the Dark Wood is displayed on one of our lists; you can complete your order through them, and bookshop.org will ship the book to you. Remember you can order all sorts of books through them, and we get a portion of the sale.

Want to support the Parish Book Store, but finding it a challenge because we are still physically closed?  We have the solution:  Click on the Bookshop link (bookshop.org) on the left panel of this page and order ANY book. We earn the commission on the sale, and Bookshop ships the book directly to you.  Titles are not limited to books we have in our current inventory or religious books, but include children’s titles as well as fiction and nonfiction. 

Bookshop, which is nonprofit,  was created to support independent bookshops that have faced the challenge of competition from on-line ordering from Amazon.  Each affiliate earns 10% of overall sales made through bookshop.org (over $5 million since January), and members of the American Booksellers Association (that means the Parish Book Store!) earn 30% of each sale made through their websites or by visiting bookshop.org and clicking on the display of the bookstore selected.

 So while we are sequestered, we hope that you will continue to read and to support the Parish Book Store.

The Parish Book Store remains closed, but we are making plans for re-opening!  In the meantime, we are asking for monetary donations to purchase bilingual books for children on the Eastern Shore of Virginia to be distributed through Dos Santos.  Checks may be made out to Parish Book Store with "bilingual books" in the memo line and sent to Parish Book Store, 2020 Laskin Rd., Virginia Beach, VA 23454.  We will be collecting donations until June 15, so don't delay!  Stay healthy!

Join the Parish Book Store Book Group in reading Hallelujah, Anyhow!, a memoir by the Rt. Rev. Barbara Harris, the first woman elected to the episcopacy within the Anglican Communion.  The book is available in the Parish Book Store.  Our group is open to all, and our discussions are lively, but always civil.  The date of our discussion of this book will be after Easter, so you have plenty of time to get the book and read!
