Welcome to the Confraternity of Penitents Holy Angels Gift Shop! We offer a wide variety of Liturgy of the Hours, Franciscan items, Catholic books, religious jewelry, rosaries, scapulars, statuary, chaplets, prayer cards, religious medals, and First Communion Gifts and cards.
Proceeds from this shop go to support the Confraternity of Penitents, a non-profit, tax exempt private association of the faithful under the Roman Catholic Church and the Bishop of the Diocese of Fort Wayne/South Bend Indiana USA. Members of the Confraternity of Penitents live a religious rule of life, given to them by Saint Francis of Assisi in 1221. This is lived as closely as possible to its original intent, in their own homes and in community houses for single penitents. In their lives, they try to promote penance (conversion to doing things God's way) through their prayers, personal witness, and works of mercy.
Please see our main site www.penitents.org for complete information, our Rule of Life, Apostolates, a Penance Library, on line publications, and much information. Please contact us through our penitents.org site if you are interested in exploring your own living of this joyful way of life! All Roman Catholics eighteen years of age and older are eligible to inquire. Non-Catholics may also inquire as Associates. We hope to hear from you!
May God bless you for supporting the Confraternity of Penitents through the CFP Holy Angels Gift Shop, in its mission to "repair My Church which, as you can see, is falling into ruin." (The Message given to Saint Francis of Assisi from the San Damiano Crucifix).
WOW! You folks are fantastic! On order 997, I feel you went above and beyond what would have been necessary. On order 1259, you must have worn jet-powered roller skates. I placed the order Dec 31, a long Holy Day weekend, as we know, thinking that if it arrived by 1/10/16 or thereabouts, it would be fine. Instead, I received it today (1/4/16). In both cases, fantastic service!
You will be the first place I look for things of this nature, and I will definitely recommend you every chance I get!
Thanks for great service
May God bless all your endeavors
