St. Francis Chapel Gift Shop and Bookstore is a Catholic gift shop located in the chapel, offering a selection of religious articles and books in order to strengthen faith and nourish hearts with reminders of God’s mercy and love.
What Are Good Catholic Gifts?
If you’re looking to gift a loved one with something that will nourish their faith for an upcoming special occasion, come visit our Catholic gift shop. We provide Catholic gifts for a variety of special occasions, such as:
- First Communion
Mark these special occasions with a meaningful gift of a Bible, rosary, medal, crucifix, icon or statue. You might also consider gifting a book to help them along their spiritual journey.
Books to Nourish the Mind and Heart
Praying the Rosary with Venerable Bruno Lanteri is the latest book by the Oblates of the Virgin Mary and the first in the Nunc Coepi Series. A Scriptural passage and an excerpt from the writings of Venerable Bruno help us to meditate on the fruits of each Mystery of the Holy Rosary. This new book will be available at the Chapel Gift Shop this Easter!
Fr. Timothy Gallagher, OMV, is a noted author and speaker on the prayer and spirituality. His books, CD’s and DVD’s are among the more popular items we offer at the gift shop. He has a great gift to teach people how to pray with Scripture, use the examen prayer to recognize the presence of God in their daily lives, and so discern God’s will for their lives.
Venerable Bruno Lanteri, who founded the Oblates of the Virgin Mary, knew the power of good reading and of beauty to touch hearts and transform lives. And so, the Oblate priests and staff at St. Francis Chapel carry on this mission of inviting people to a deeper relationship with God by offering good books, ranging from spiritual classics to contemporary works, along with devotional materials and prayer books in both English and Spanish.
