Useful Resources



This is your gateway to the best Cahtolic videoes, books, and audio books available! You can move freely and easily between topics and internet devices wherever you are and whenever you'res ready. You can work through the resources at your own pace and according to your interests. More information here...


Parish Library

If you enter the main doors of the church, the library is in a room off to the left. The shelves are labeled to help you find books for particular topics. To borrow a book, simply write your name on the book card that you'll find in the back of the book and put the card in the metal box you'll see on the shelf. When you're finished you can leave the book in the basket on the small table; we'll take care of re-shelving it for you.

A selection of audio and visual tapes as well as some additional display books are available in the lobby area of the church. Tell me more.


Lighthouse Catholic Media Audio CDs

Just inside the main doors of the Church you'll see a wall display with about a dozen different audio CDs on a variety of topics - everything from stories of conversion to the power of forgiveness to marriage support. The selection of available CDs changes, so check it regularly. If you would like to help offset the cost of these fabulous CDs, there is a donation box attached to the display; suggested donation is $3. Lighthouse Catholic Media's Website has additional materials.

Also, go to FORMED for free CDs...

Apologetics / Catholic Beliefts

Apologetics refers to the sincere study of the faith so that one is full prepared to explain and defend our beliefs to those who question it. Going to official Church documents at the Vatican website is often a good place to start.
