FAQs

Q: Do you only stock Catholic gifts and books?

A: We are truly a Christian book store and gift shop. We do carry gifts and books appropriate for Catholic sacraments, but we strive to create a shopping environment comfortable for all Christian faiths.

Q: What is the difference between Baptism and Christening? What type of gift should I buy? 

A: Christening vs Baptism: Although the words Christening and Baptism are often used interchangeably, each ceremony holds its own significance and meaning. Christenings are naming ceremonies, where children are given a Christian name. Baptisms are one of the seven sacraments in the Catholic church. Christenings typically occur for babies, while baptisms can be held for adults. For more information on the differences, please click here.
