We are announcing a new aspect of our Non Profit that is very dear to our hearts. Starting this month, we will be giving away one free Baltimore Catechism No. 3 Father Connell's Confraternity Edition (1952 Benziger Brothers reprint by St. Jerome Homeschool Library Press). Please simply use our contact form or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address. We will go in order of requests and email back to confirm that you would still like one. The catechisms are also available at our ebay store for $14.95. If you are very tight on funds and would very much like to have one or know someone in particular that you think is open to learning about the Faith, please send us a request. Perhaps someday we will be able to offer more, but our funds are very limited at present. God bless!
Just letting everyone know that Fr. Lehtoranta is still working hard on the Mass Board Book. It will be exciting to see the finished product! God bless, everyone!
We're so excited to announce the news of the release of The Boat to Limbo by Rev. Vili Lehtoranta, a Catholic teaching full-color storybook about Limbo! (available on eBay & Amazon)
This is a wonderful storybook for any Catholic child, but in addition, you are supporting our fundraiser for an incredible new board book that Fr. Lehtoranta is working on which will teach young children about the externals of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. We truly need your help in funding this project! This is a great way to get those Christmas presents for those you love taken care of! ;)
Details on the Fundraiser
Because there are no print-on-demand publishers for board books, St. Jerome Homeschool Library & Bookstore has set up a fundraising account so that Rev. Vili Lehtoranta might publish his lovely Mass board book for young children. Every profit from every sale of one of Father's books will go towards the fundraiser. All these sales will be listed on the You Caring website, so watch the amount grow with us!
Dependent upon the fundraiser reaching the goal amount of $6000:
Please keep this intention in your prayers. Thank you and may God bless you for your charity!
Do you remember the Phonics is Fun series? It has been out of print for years, and after much work, we are so excited to announce it new reprinting! It will be featuring a new cover and available on Amazon and eBay through our bookstore. We will announce just as soon as it is prepared, most likely another week or two. Thank you so much for your prayers! We hope this helps many families find a good phonics program that isn't dummed-down with Common Core standards, etc. Many families have used Phonics is Fun for generations (including ours). God bless you! St. Irenaeus, pray for us!
A great BIG thank you to those who have recently donated so many wonderful books to the St. Jerome Homeschool Library!! May God bless you for your great generosity and kindness in thinking of helping other homeschooling families!
We hope to see some of you there at the Wisconsin IHM Conference! We're so excited as this is our first year being a vendor there. April 6, Thursday, 12-6PM . www.ihmconference.org/wisconsin/in/
We have been placing more orders with OLVS, and also working with Rev. Vili Lehtoranta on his upcoming books for Catholic children. You will see our library & bookstore logo in the bottom corner on these new books. Such an exciting time! We also got invited as a vendor to the IHM Conference in WI this year! Can't wait to see some of you there!
We're so thrilled that our new ebay store, stjeromehomeschoolbookstore is up and running! We hope that our customers will find this easier to navigate and a great way to save money with ebucks and other money-saving tools. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
We are currently in the middle of making our new website for SJHLB. It is very exciting, and we hope it will be a positive change. While we would rather have the store website, our old one was very slow and unreliable due to poor servers from our host. In switching to Weebly, we hope that some day we can grow into a proper store here (the costs are currently too expensive for us). In the meantime, we will work with what we can afford which is an Ebay store and this website for information and a rental list for homeschoolers to rent from. We hope it will prove helpful to our patrons and loyal customers. St. Stanislaus Kostka, pray for us!
