I haven’t been updating the blog in recent months as I have been working away in the background to get the shop up and running.
My computer skills are good, but I have never put a shop online before and so I have had to learn the basics.
I had to close the retail shop in Knock due to the seasonal nature of the pilgrimage season but I will be offering a small but growing range of Catholic Art prints both classical and home designed. These will be available in two sizes A4 and A3 and are suitable for framing. I decided not to continue with framing the prints myself as it is impossible to get the glass insured and there is a danger of breakages during shipping. However this gives greater flexibility as you can choose a frame yourself from any of the many outlets that sell frames.
I will also be offering a range of Catholic greeting cards. These are a great way to promote the Catholic faith. Each card has a religious theme with some quotes from a Saint, or a scripture quotation on the back. I can also design individual Catholic cards for example if you have a favourite saint or other theme you would like to send to someone. All cards on the website are designed and printed in-house.
From tomorrow you will also be able to donate to ‘True Devotions’ and to ‘Legio Sanctae Familiae’ online via secure credit card processing.
Finally in this first phase there will also be some devotional booklets available. The booklet on the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady is proving to be very popular and of great benefit to those who undertake this simple devotion. I also hope to design more of these booklets based on the older and more traditional devotions of the Catholic Church
May God bless you for your support and prayers. Please feel free to contact me with any ideas you may have for the website or shop.
