Signed copies of The Abbey, by Rev. James Martin, S.J. Available for Purchase
A limited number of signed copies of The Abbey, the debut novel by Rev. James Martin, S.J., are available for purchase at Reception.

About The Abbey:
A story of three lives intersecting — a grieving mother, an ambitious young architect who finds himself working as a handyman, and the wise, yet uncertain abbot of a local monastery. While each struggles with their unique challenges alone, it is when their lives come together that they begin their shared journey toward faith, hope and love.

Cost: $25/copy

Jubilee Year of Mercy
The Jubilee Year of Mercy, which concludes on November 20, 2016 — Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe — is, in the words of Pope Francis:

A time “for the church to take up the joyful call to mercy once more.
It is time to return to the basics and to bear the weaknesses and struggles of our brothers and sisters.”
