America's Great (and not so great) Catholic Moments--A Perpetual Calendar, by Thomas J. Craughwell. 370 pages. Size: 4 1/2" X 6".

Who was the first Catholic woman to demand the right to vote? Care to guess when the first Catholic ceremony was performed in the White House? (Hint: It wasn't during the Kennedy administration.) Which Catholic was involved in the Lincoln assassination?

This fun, informative calendar spotlights the Catholic men and women who helped build America:

  • statesmen (Charles Carroll, Richard J. Daley)
  • educators (Father Edward Sorin of Notre Dame, Mother Theodore Guerin of St. Mary-of-the-Woods)
  • movie stars (Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby)
  • sports legends (Jim Thorpe, Babe Ruth, Dan Marino)
  • famous converts (Nathaniel Hawthorne's daughter, Rose; entertainer Bob Hope).
  • Plus a host of pioneer nuns, missionary priests, and bricks-and-mortar bishops.

    Here is an eye-opening look at Catholicism's incredibly rich contribution to America's story.
