Library and Bookstore Service Group
The Library/Bookstore Service Group has been continuing with the project of getting all our books entered into our data base on Library Thing. We are now more than half done. We have added new bookshelves to better house and make available our collection.
The Library and Bookstore Service Group has two distinct components. Both the Parish Library and the Saints Cyril and Methodius Bookstore share a common purpose. We seek to support Parish members and friends in quality spiritual reading for the encouragement, education, and growth in holiness for all. The aim of Christian life is to learn what it means to be made in God's image and likeness, and to live into an ever-deepening communion with God the Holy Trinity. We desire to be a helpful resource to that end.
As it is located in the bookcase in the south corner of the Narthex when you enter the Church, the Bookstore is a kind of Parish front-door and welcoming committee. Our Parish will typically have a lovely person in the Narthex to greet you on a Sunday if you come to the Divine Liturgy to visit; but the Bookstore also offers books for folks who may be new to Orthodoxy. This is yet another way that we seek to welcome all those who come to worship the risen Christ! We hope that you find some interesting and helpful things in our Bookstore, and that you will also explore our Library for a more expansive collection of books.
