Inviting God’s People into an Encounter with His Word

Pauline Books & Media Center

What We Offer

Books & Resources

For decades, our Pauline Books & Media center has been a trusted source for Catholic books and gifts in the Boston area. From baby’s first Bible to the spiritual classics and beyond, we seek to accompany God’s people in all of life’s chapters by offering our patrons  personalized recommendations—and above all, a listening ear.

Adoration Chapel

What distinguishes us from traditional bookstores is the beating heart of our ministry: the presence of the Blessed Sacrament in our chapel, open to the public for prayer during book center hours.


We serve our local faith community through a rotating schedule of programming for all ages, including prayer experiences, vocational opportunities, retreats, talks, book signings, and children’s events.

Vocational Discernment

Our sisters regularly host opportunities for vocational discernment, providing a space for young women to learn more about religious life and pray about where God is calling them. To become aware of opportunities near you or to speak with a sister about vocational discernment, get in touch with us. Know that we are praying for you! 

Pauline Cooperators

Are you a lay person who is feeling called to share in the mission of proclaiming God’s Word through the media? We invite you to learn more about the Association of Pauline Cooperators. Contact us for information about how you can get involved.

“A wonderful store to browse through. Many come for a Baptism, Communion or Confirmation gift but there is so much else. Take the time to stop by, say a prayer in the chapel and pick up something that brings you peace.”
