Liturgical Books for Sale (Updated)

Fr Thomas Simons of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Comstock Park, Michigan, has asked me to post this list of liturgical books which he has for sale, hoping to find them good homes where they will be used and studied. The proceeds from the sale of these titles will aid several parish projects in need; you can contact him directly for more information about the books, and arrangements for purchase, shipping and handling at the following email address: There is a very wide selection of titles for both the EF and OF; be sure to click the “Continue Reading This Article” link to see the full list.

UPDATE: Most of the items have already been sold, and have now been removed from this post.
