The Second Greatest Story Ever Told

By Fr. Michael E. Gaitley, MIC

Now Available in the Parish Center

Donation $15

From the author of the bestselling book 33 Days to Morning Glory comes a gripping account of the prophetic witness of St. John Paul II, and the profound connection between Marian Consecration and Divine Mercy. This book serves as an inspiration for all who desire to bear witness to the mercy of God, focused on Christ and formed by Mary. Sixteen full-color pages were added to the new "Premium Edition." Proceeds benefit St. Bonaventure Parish. Sponsored by St. Bonaventure Divine Mercy Ministry 

The Second Greatest Story Ever Told is more than a historical re-telling of the Great Mercy Pope. It calls us to respond to the urgent need for mercy in our time of unprecedented evil.

Resisting Happiness: Audio Files

Audio files to listen to the recorded talks of Fr. Angelos and Fr. Martin on Resisting Happiness Book Study are now available. CD's are also available in limited quantities at the Parish Center. Look for upcoming information on Resisting Happiness Small Group Discussions in the near future.

We all know the things that will make us happy, but we don’t always do them. Why? We’re resistant. With his signature combination of the profound and the practical, New York Times bestselling author Matthew Kelly helps you learn why we sabotage ourselves, feel overwhelmed, set aside our dreams, and lack the courage to simply be ourselves . . . and how to start choosing happiness again. Resisting Happiness will inspire you to break through resistance so you can become the-best-version-of-yourself® and start living with passion and purpose.
