As of August 15th, the Feast Day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary with the downtown Brown’s Edition store, and 10 years, this coming Mother’s Day with the Abbas Retreat Outlet located at the Immaculate Heart Retreat Center.

As a woman owned Catholic Corporation, Marian by nature and practicing Secular Franciscan, I believe in the meaning of the word ‘Catholic’ as ‘Universal’. As a result, Abbas Catholic Bookstores respects, supports and works with people of all faiths, and as an equal opportunity employer, creates lasting partnerships with other community based businesses. 

May you enjoy the e-commerce site as much as you appreciate the stores, and let us continue to pray for each other.   

Yours in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary,

Aileen G. Fields, Owner    

My Challenges: 

God told me to start this store.  SCORE helped me with the steps to make it a business with the state.  

How SCORE Helped: 

Hank Stein helped with my business systems when I was struggling with the demands of  keeping business aspects sorted out, especially in terms of state taxes.

My Successes: 

After many trials, I am still in business after many years in the same location.  I am truly blessed

What's Great About My Mentor?: 

He understood my problems and helped me through.  He has returned to visit several times over the years.

Yours in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary
