We hope you and yours will be celebrating a merry Catholic Christmas this year! To help you enter fully into the season, Father William P. Saunders will be in the shop to meet our guests and sign copies of his latest book, Celebrating a Merry Catholic Christmas: A Guide to the Customs and Feast Days of Advent and Christmas. The book signing will take place on Saturday, December 1st between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. 

Just published, Celebrating a Merry Catholic Christmas is a treasure, one that offers its riches year after year. It is a valuable resource for understanding and celebrating Advent and Christmas as a Catholic. But, more than providing the historical roots of traditions, such as the Advent wreath and Christmas tree, it also features spiritual reflections and suggestions for practices to enrich your family’s Christmas preparation and celebration.

You’ll find all of the major Feast Days of Advent and Christmas along with devotions and traditions that will help your family get more out of these important seasons.

Father Saunders is pastor of Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church in Potomac Falls, Virginia. He is author of the two volume set, Straight Answers which raises and answers  many questions about the Catholic faith. Father Saunders also authors the website, Catholic Straight Answers.

We will also be serving refreshments all day for our annual holiday open house. Stop by to purchase your copy of Father’s newest book, have it signed by him, chat with him and enjoy some punch and cookies!
