Join us for the Catholic Catalogue Book Club!


Catholic Catalogue Book Club -

In case you missed Lisa’s announcement, for our next book club, we’ll be reading The Catholic Catalogue: A Field Guide to the Daily Acts That Make Up a Catholic Life, by Melissa Musick and Anna Keating.

The Catholic Catalogue: A Field Guide to the Daily Acts That Make Up a Catholic Life

The popular mother-daughter team behind the hit website helps readers to discover, rediscover, and embrace some of the smells and tastes, sounds and sensations, holidays and seasons of the Catholic life. This collection of prayers, crafts, devotionals and recipes will help readers make room in their busy lives for mystery and meaning, awe and joy.

This beautifully designed book will help readers celebrate Catholicism throughout the years, across daily practice and milestones. Like the most useful field guides, it is divided into user-friendly sections and covers such topics as the veneration of relics, blessing your house, discovering a vocation, raising teenagers, getting a Catholic tattoo, planting a Mary garden, finding a spiritual director, and exploring your own way in the tradition.

With more than 75 inspiring chapters, this book promises to be a resource that individuals and families will turn to again and again.

Here’s how it will work:

We’ll post a reflection each week on Saturdays, beginning with an author interview on March 5, 2016. We have a team of writers who will be reflecting on each chapter and posting discussion questions. You’re welcome to read along with us.

You can participate in a few ways:

1. Read along.

2. Leave comments on each post with your thoughts and impressions or even take a stab at the discussion questions.

3. Interact with other commenters.

4. Share the posts and the discussion in your real-life networks and/or your social networks.
