New in the Library: The Bible Blueprint by Joe Paprocki 
A Catholic's Guide to Understanding and Embracing God's Word
It's pretty hard to build a house if you don't know how to read a blueprint. In the same way, it's difficult to develop your faith if you don't know how to read the Bible - or are reluctant even to open it. In The Bible Blueprint, best-selling author and popular speaker Joe Paprocki cleverly uses a blue print metaphor to help Catholics gain a solid understanding of the structure and organization of the Bible, and to help them build confidence in navigating its pages.


Enrich your spiritual life - CDs are available for purchase in the back vestibules. 
New selections are put out every 6-8 weeks.
