EASY. INSPIRING. AFFORDABLE.
Everything You Need to Know About Bringing the Book Program to Your Parish
How Does It Work?
Order Rediscover the Saints for your parishioners (other titles are available, too).
On Christmas, have volunteers pass out books as people enter or leave the church.
Encourage people to read the book, share it, and to join BEST LENT EVER this spring.
Ordering Your Books
We recommend that you order enough books for 75 percent of registered families. That means that if you have 2,000 registered families, we suggest that you order 1,500 books. You can order your books online or call our Mission team at (859) 980–7900.
Distributing Your Books
Giving someone the right book at the right time can be life-changing—and personally giving them that book will make an even greater impact. Whether it’s as people arrive for Mass or as they leave, have friendly volunteers stand at the doors to personally hand out the books.
Engaging Your Parishioners
There are many ways to encourage your parishioners to read the book. We provide free bulletin ads for the weeks leading up to Christmas, as well as pulpit announcements. Many parishes even organize small groups to discuss the book using our free study guides.
Affording Your Books
While we want to make the Book Program as affordable as possible (selling books for as low as $1.50 each), we know it can still be difficult for some parishes to afford.
If you’re looking for ways to pay for your books, you can print out and use this fundraising form with your parishioners or talk to your pastor about raising funds using a popular “crowd-funding” website like GoFundMe or Kickstarter.
