The final "Saintly Reading" collection for the 2016-17 school year celebrates the contributions so many Women Religious have made to the Church throughout its history as well as their continuing devotion to Christ. In this collection, you can find histories of how nuns shaped the United States and the Church around the world, the story of a nun who gave her life for others in the Nazi Death Camp of Aushwitz, and the fight an American nun has waged to end the death penality in the United States. Check out any of the DCHS library's books to give you some relief from the pressures of exams!
