Books to Buy

Students are not required to buy these texts, but they are responsible for having a copy for their sole use during the course. The Library provides a book exchange for students to pass on books they no longer need to other students, and is located in the library office. Please consider donating gently used textbooks. Identify any book to be dropped off for the swap so that they can be marked. Donation to the swap is not necessary to take books from it.

  • Lawrence J. Johnson
    The Mystery of Faith – Revised Edition
    Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions (FDLC)
    Instructor Comments: The price is cheaper when purchased in bulk by SJV. The instructor will order the number of books requested by the students at the first class. The cost to the student is $12.00, if the book is ordered by SJV.
  • Edward Schaefer
    Catholic Music Through the Ages
    Liturgy Training Publications
    Instructor Comments: The price new is from Liturgy Training Publications. The book is less expensive if purchased via Amazon.
