Lighthouse Audio CDs

We have an exciting new Evangelization ministry/opportunity here at St Paul parish, the Augustine Institute Kiosk.

In the vestibule of the church is a beautiful kiosk that holds a large variety of inspiring CDs. The CDs are audio recordings of inspiring talks on various topics of Catholic life to help build up your faith in God and give inspiration in your life.

You will hear the best speakers in the world, such as Bishop Robert Barron, Dr. Scott Hahn, Dr. Tim Gray, Dr. Edward Sri, Mother Teresa,, and many more.

Thousands of emails and letters from listeners say that these CDs helped them fall more in love with God and His Church. For example,
“This has renewed my love for the Mass and for Jesus!
“It is hard to express the spiritual impact this CD has had on me. I don’t believe I will ever celebrate the Eucharist the same way again!”
“This has brought me back to the Church! This CD helped me tremendously!”
“These CDs have given me the strength to face my weaknesses and remind me of the covenant I have with my Lord Jesus Christ.”

How many of us have family or friends who have left the Church? Most of us will have to raise our hands. If you were ask how many of us want them back home in the Church, we would all raise our hands again. The good news is that 53% of those who come back do so because someone in the Church gave them a CD or a book.

Purchase some CDs today to help you continue to grow in your faith, and help a loved one come home to the Church by passing some CDs onto them. We are all called to evangelize. There can be no easier or less expensive way than through these inspiring CDs.

Each CD is only $4.00 each and will help to maintain this ministry and enable us to continue to bring in new titles often (this is less than one-half of the retail price). Many are also in Spanish! The most important thing is to know Jesus Christ. These wonderful CDs will inspire you to fall in love more and more with Jesus and His Church.

Some of our current CDs include* (Click on each title for more information.) All Things are Possible for God
la Misa Explicada
Prayer: Gateway to the Spiritual Life
The Four Last Things
The Mass Explained
The Right Perspective
The Treasure of Our Soul: The Apostles’ Creed
