The Holy Cross Chapel and Catholic Resource Center has a Bookstore on the Second Floor that also has religious articles for sale. Due to limited space and staff, the number of titles is not large, but the books are carefully selected to be useful in the spiritual life of the Catholic faithful who are seeking worthwhile reading. We welcome you to stop by and browse.
