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. 

Our Lady of Fatima Home Visitation

St. Bonaventure Parish has a Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima. The Legion of Mary invites you to welcome her into your home. The Pilgrim Virgin is a beautiful, visible reminder of Our Blessed Mother who constantly intercedes for us.

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.
