The Pauline Books and Media Center

Pauline Books and Media is a Catholic bookstore run by religious sisters, the Daughters of St. Paul. You’ll find the great Catholic books, music and movies you’d expect, but also a Blessed Sacrament Chapel where Jesus is present in the Eucharist. Here the sisters will give you their personal attention so that you’ll leave more confident in your faith, strengthened in moments of darkness, and at peace. 

Those who shop at Pauline Books and Media appreciate the variety of Catholic resources and media they find: books, audio, music, and DVDs. Whether you just stop in or browse the shelves, you'll enjoy the books on spirituality and the saints, music from popular Christian singers and the Daughters of St. Paul Choir, reading for Lent, gifts for Baptism and First Communion, statues, Bibles, Missals, lives of saints and biographies, prayerbooks, and more. Above all our guests return again and again because of the spiritual accompaniment offered by the sisters for daily life, their promise of prayers, and the oasis of calm found in the Chapel. We know that resources for ministry are an important part of evangelization today. That’s why we offer assistance in choosing just the right materials to assist you in the work you do. You’ll leave Pauline Books and Media confident that you have what you need to grow in being a better disciple of Jesus and reach out to others.

In the store the sisters give each guest personalized attention in his or her search for books and gifts, locating the item that will open up a new path through inspiration, information, and spiritual support. We have a passion for evangelization. In whatever venue you find us, we will welcome you with joyful hearts. We know that when people search for a book, they are often looking for so much more. That’s why we’re there to listen to you, and make sure you leave the store with what will most help you on the path of discipleship and in your ministry.
