Catholic speaker & author, Matthew Kelly says: "We become the stories we listen to"…and in today’s society, we need to read and hear more good quality literature, especially about our Catholic saints and heroes. We are a small, family run ministry dedicated to helping children and young people read great literature that is not in opposition to our Catholic faith, and actually helps it to grow. We belong to Holy Family Parish in rural Cedar County, Nebraska. By providing books from great Catholic publishers like Chesterton Press, Illuminated Ink, Lighthouse Catholic Media, Pauline Press, Bethlehem Books, CCC of America, Ignatius Press, and more, we can work together to give our children the best in great Catholic literature. We currently have over 500 different titles and items from about 12 different publishers and companies and we are adding more all the time.
With St. Paul Catholic Book Fair and Gifts, your school or organization will earn 20% of the sales in your choice of free books and other items that we offer.
You choose which books you would like to receive from our inventory and suppliers. We will set up & clean up the book fair for you. If you are having a one or two-day event, we can run the book fair for you. If you would like to have the books available for a longer period of time, you can have someone run the book fair for you, similar to how you would with Scholastic. We also ask that you have tables set up for us to display the books and other items on; and to promote the Fair with the flyer we provide and through your regular newsletters and messaging systems. Otherwise there is little work for you!
What Catholic school are saying about St. Paul Catholic Book Fair:
Anita from St. John Neumann in Clarkson, Nebraska:
“We held a St. Paul Catholic Book Fair at our small school for the first time and were very impressed with the quality and selection of books, DVDs and other religious items. It was nice to have a Book Fair that we didn’t have to worry about whether or not the books promoted Catholic Christian values. With the profit from our sales we were able to add many new books & DVDs to our library.”
Julie from St. Francis in Humphrey, Nebraska:
“The St. Paul Catholic Book Fair was a huge success for our school! We were able to provide great Catholic literature and projects for our school families and our school received several free books for our library. The selection and prices were very favorable and our students are very excited about reading them all!”
Joan from Columbus, Nebraska:
"Catholics of all ages can find something to help their spiritual growth at the Catholic Book Fair. I was impressed with the variety of items that were offered. We need to put more of these kind of books and items into the hands of our children and their families!"
