The American Catholic Almanac

The American Catholic Almanac, by Brian Burch and Emily Stimpson is now available in paperback.  As we wrote when first reviewed in Sept. 2014, this volume could be considered a “must have” for interested Catholic readers. The book is subtitled: A Daily Reader of Patriots, Saints, Rouges and Ordinary People who Changed the United States. The volume in not your typical Catholic history book. The authors put together a day page-a-day account of various Catholic men and women, many rarely heard of before, who had a significant impact on the development of Catholicism in the US. There are three Appendices. Appendix A is a list of American Saints (listed by date of birth, death and feast day), Blesseds, and Venerables (listed by date of birth and death). Appendix B is a list of US dioceses and dates of their founding. Appendix C is a list of US minor basilicas, with dates of designation by the Holy See.  Available $16.00 (also available in e-book format) from Image Books, a Division of Random House, 12264 Oracle Blvd. Suite 200, Colorado Springs, CO 80921.
