WE ARE CALLED!

What does it mean to be “called”? Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, in her latest book Called, extends the idea of the sacred nature of being “called” to all walks of life & vocations, not just priests. Come to the Parish Book Store & see our other titles by Crafton & other authors to expand your understanding of God’s place in the world and in your heart.

FOR TURBULENT TIMES

If you are feeling in these turbulent times that “things fall apart; the centre cannot hold,”* we invite you to peruse our shelves to find books of healing and inspiration such as The Book of Forgiving by Desmond Tutu and Mpho Tutu.  Deepak Chopra calls this book “a primer for not only finding the path for healing ourselves and the world, but for restoring balance in our biology, mind, and spirit.”

*William Butler Yeats, "The Second Coming."

THANK YOU!

Our tree is now bare.  Thank you to all who supported the Mission of the Holy Spirit and Book Store by  taking a gingerbread boy or girl and purchasing a book for one of the children of the Mission.  All the gingerbread boys and girls on our tree will have books for Christmas! Well done!  See you in the New Year!
