Welcome to Abbas Catholic Bookstores e-commerce site. I would like to take this opportunity and thank all of you who have supported Abbas Ministry throughout the years. As of August 15th, the Feast Day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary with the downtown Brown’s Edition store, and 10 years, this coming Mother’s Day with the Abbas Retreat Outlet located at the Immaculate Heart Retreat Center. The newest edition, September 8, 2017, the Feast Day of Our Blessed Mother’s birth will be the one year anniversary for the Abbas franchise, whose proprietors are Robert and Debra Geist, located in downtown Coeur d’Alene Idaho.
Thank you, again, for your generous love and support.
For those of you not familiar with Abbas Catholic Bookstores, the mission is grounded in the Catholic Faith, and the ministry is all about education, evangelization and offering support for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Those of you who frequent the bricks and mortar stores know we carry a wide variety of products that support the Latin Tradition as well as the New Mass. Whether you are seeking materials for formation, catechesis, apologetics or simply wholesome Catholic literature, our inventory of Bibles, Missals and Prayer Pamphlets prepare you to become spiritually equipped as you journey into Eternal Life. In case you are concerned the stores will become all e-commerce, don’t be. The Crucifixes, rosaries, statuary and beautiful artwork will continue to adorn the walls and jewelry cases, as we walk with you in Christ, sharing together our Liturgical experiences, interior stories, praises and songs.
As a woman owned Catholic Corporation, Marian by nature and practicing Secular Franciscan, I believe in the meaning of the word ‘Catholic’ as ‘Universal’. As a result, Abbas Catholic Bookstores respects, supports and works with people of all faiths, and as an equal opportunity employer, creates lasting partnerships with other community based businesses.
May you enjoy the e-commerce site as much as you appreciate the stores, and let us continue to pray for each other.
Yours in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
Aileen G. Fields, Owner
