Why Shop Here?

Price



Before you buy that crucifix, rosary, book or patron saint medal, be sure that you do some comparison shopping. You will find that even stores that brand themselves as "discount" sell many of their products for 20%-50% more than we do. Why shop somewhere else when you can buy the exact same products for 20% less right here?

Read our full Return Policy for more details.

Bulk Discounts



We understand that sometimes you may need to buy a large quantity of items for a class or for a parish. We also understand that cost is a major concern. Because orders involving large quantities of items are available to us at a greater discount, we are able to pass on discounts to you.

Please call us with your large orders to see what kind of a discount we can arrange. Our discounts on bulk orders range from 10% to 28% depending on the quantity and type of item you need. And that savings is on top of our prices that are 20%-30% lower than other sites in many cases.

Orthodoxy



When you shop at the mega on-line bookstores you don't really have a way of telling if a particular book is faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church or not. Typically the secular megastores sell many anti-Catholic items and you can be supporting that effort by doing business with those stores. Its always best to support authentically Catholic stores whose efforts support the Church's call to evangelization. By shopping our online store, you can rest assured that we only carry books and media that are faithful to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. We carefully review and select each item to ensure that it does not contain questionable or unorthodox information.

No Chinese Products



We believe that by purchasing products from China we would be contributing to the things mentioned here. Because of this, we refuse to carry most statues and pretty much anything porcelain that's made today. We have been able to find sources for products in other countries. They may cost a little more but we rest better at night knowing that our money isn't helping to support forced abortions and the persecution of Christians in China.

Our Mission



Our mission is to provide the tools necessary for Catholics and non-Catholics to learn more about the Faith and for Catholics to deepen their Faith. This goal will be achieved by providing a clear, unapologetic presentation of the faith and quality Catholic products that are beautiful, fairly priced and helpful to those who want to get to Heaven.

Good Faith Guarantee



Our Good Faith Guarantee is our latest way to help you, our customers, feel secure when shopping on our website. We always want you to rest assured that we are carefully screening the material we carry so you don't have to. Any item that carries this logo on its details page next to the item's picture is guaranteed to be in conformity with official Church teaching.

We believe that as a Catholic store our mission is to clearly present the Faith, not to confuse people or promote material just because it is popular.

When you see this logo next to a vestment or liturgical vessel, it means that the item conforms to current liturgical norms.

We believe that establishing this trust with you is so important that we offer the following guarantee:

If you buy a product from us that carries this logo and you find something in it that is contrary to Catholic teaching and presented as true, we will:

  • send a shipping label to you to return the item.
  • give you a $10 gift certificate for finding the error.
  • discontinue the product or remove the logo from the item.
  • this guarantee is good for as long as you own the item.

In order to qualify for this guarantee, you will need to contact us and provide a reference from an official Catholic source that shows the disputed point in error.

The final determination of the validity of any Good Faith Guarantee claims will be made by our company.

 

We will not carry products that:

  • Are written by dissident authors
  • Concern unapproved apparitions
  • Concern visions and locutions by people who have not been declared at least Venerable by the Church
  • Promote heretical theology

Examples of authors, subjects and titles we will not carry:

  • Fr. Richard Rohr
  • Fr. Charles Curran
  • Sr. Chittister
  • Fr. Richard McBrien
  • Poem of the Man God
  • Mejugorje
  • Bayside

Chinese Products

We believe that by purchasing products from China we would be contributing to the things mentioned here. Because of this, we refuse to carry most statues and pretty much anything porcelain that's made today. We have been able to find sources for products in other countries. They may cost a little more but we rest better at night knowing that our money isn't helping to support forced abortions and the persecution of Christians in China.

Imprimatur



An imprimatur is the official seal of approval from the Church that a book does not contain anything contrary to the faith. Here are the official requirements:

Can. 827 §1. To be published, catechisms and other writings pertaining to catechetical instruction or their translations require the approval of the local ordinary, without prejudice to the prescript of can. 775, §2.

§2. Books which regard questions pertaining to sacred scripture, theology, canon law, ecclesiastical history, and religious or moral disciplines cannot be used as texts on which instruction is based in elementary, middle, or higher schools unless they have been published with the approval of competent ecclesiastical authority or have been approved by it subsequently.

§3. It is recommended that books dealing with the matters mentioned in §2, although not used as texts in instruction, as well as writings which especially concern religion or good morals are submitted to the judgment of the local ordinary.

Whenever a book has an imprimatur we will put that information on the item detail page on our site. This is just another way we help you make informed decisions about your purchases. To see if a book has an imprimatur look for the red Cross of Malta on the item's page. When you put your mouse over the cross a small window with the imprimatur information will pop up.

We are currently working on getting imprimatur information for our books in the system. Until this large project is complete, some books that do carry imprimaturs will not display them.

Please note that the lack of an imprimatur does not make a book bad, it simply falls into the third category of books listed above. Due to the large quantity of titles published each year and a lack of resources within a diocese to properly review all books, many authors do not seek an imprimatur on books that fall into the third category.

For some more information on imprimaturs, we recommend visiting Jimmy Akin's blog.

Special Features



Apart from the basic features you come to expect from Catholic store websites, we have several unique features that set us apart from the rest.

  • More Search Options. Apart from the standard keyword and category searches, you can also search our site by publisher, ISBN, author, event and liturgical season. As events and seasons approach, we will be adding them to our search options. Just click the "More Search Options" link on the left side of the screen to see how easy it is to find just what you are looking for.
  • Preorder. We are the only Catholic store on-line that gives you the ability to preorder books from different publishers. As with all of our standard U.S. orders, you aren't billed until the book ships. Just click the "Preorder" link on the left side of the screen to see what great new books are coming out and how much you can save by ordering now.
  • Wedding Registry. What other Catholic site do you know of with a wedding registry? Of course you need to register for all of the practical material goods at regular stores, but won't it be nice to be able to register for items that will improve your spiritual life and strengthen your marriage?
  • Military Chaplain Registries. As a special service to our troops, we have established a chaplain's registry on our site. Military chaplains tell us what their troops need, we list it in our registry and generous customers like you buy items which we send to the troops. What other site does that?
  • Customizable Products. Whether you need custom holy cards for a baptism or wedding, or a patron saint rosary as a gift, you can customize it right here. We carry customizable patron saint rosaries, custom holy cards and custom Catholic School Girl dolls that you can change to create a unique gift or keepsake. No other Catholic site offers the number of customizable products that we do.
  • Wish Lists. We are the only Catholic store to offer a wish list feature. By creating a wish list you can save products for later, rate them in importance and send your wish list to others so they know what gifts you would like.
  • Imprinting. Many of our books and Bibles can be foil imprinted to create a lasting memory.
  • Custom Printing. Do you have a special card you want printed that no one makes? We can do custom printing for your parish or group.
  • Gift Wrap.  We are the only Catholic web store that offers a gift wrapping service.
