The Parish Library serves the spiritual and educational growth of our community by providing a dynamic and collaborative resource collection of quality materials in the Roman Catholic tradition. We invite you to visit our Parish Library located in the Gathering Space looking out on the St. Francis Garden. The collection of books, DVDs and CDs is constantly growing. We welcome all browsers and readers.
