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.
- Catholic Church
Instructor Comment: Any version published in 2011 that is the latest translation of the third typical edition. A ritual version for chapel of church is strongly preferred, but if a hand missal is brought then the General Instruction of the Roman Missal must be purchased separately. Please see below.
- Catholic Church
General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM)
Instructor Comment: If the student’s version of the Roman Missal does not have the GIRM then it must be purchased separately.
