Read about the history of Tom and Joanne Peters' Catholic Books and Gifts...
Their story could have been taken from a chapter in a book off their shelves. It is a testimony to faith, prayer and everyday miracles. Tom and Joanne Peters had the grand reopening of Catholic Books and Gifts on March 19, 2010 at their new store in Fountain Valley. Less than two miles from their former location in Huntington Beach, the 20-year running, family-owned enterprise reached a milestone with the acquisition of this location more than double in size. One could make a case that this success came due to the resurgence of interest in the faith following the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, or the deaths of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and Pope John Paul II, or the recent economic crisis bringing people to find solace in prayer, or the addition of their website which gives them an international presence. A comparison of timelines and calculated figures could easily prove these. The Peters', however, would rather attribute it all to a higher origin. (The full story of Catholic Books and Gifts)
