Bookstore News

Wendy BentlifWe've all become accustomed to her face and her Australian accent, but after 31 years of dedicated Sunday morning volunteering in the Cathedral Bookstore, Wendy Bentlif is going to retire from weekly Sunday work. Her loyalty, efficiency, and capabilities have been beyond measure and there is really no way to adequately thank her for all she has done to make the Bookstore a success from its inception. For now, the good news is that she will continue to do book embossing on Wednesdays, and she will be able to partake of more Cathedral offerings on Sunday mornings. God bless you Wendy, you are a treasure.

As we adapt to this change in our community of volunteers, we are grateful to have Roxanne Dolen and Laura Dowdy in training this fall.


Cathedral member Merrilee Cunningham’s new book of poetry, “Something Will Come to Us,” is available, as well as seasonal items including Advent calendars.

“All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr

Ten years in the writing, this beautiful, ambitious novel follows a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. This is a novel to live in, learn from, and feel bereft over when the last page is turned.
