Item Description...
In the New England town of Dorsetville, the citizens are poor in worldly goods but rich in faith and compassion. For generations-long before the last woolen mill closed five years ago-Dorsetvillians have been bound together by the massive St. Cecilia's Catholic Church, slated to close after mass on Easter Sunday. On a bitter cold Ash Wednesday morning, Father James Flaherty despairs of ever turning the parish finances around. What will become of his flock and the beloved, ancient Father Keene, who had planned to live out his days at St. Cecilia's? Delightful and moving, with a cast of endearing and quirky characters, A Miracle for St. Cecilia's warms hearts and enchants readers everywhere.

A Miracle For St. Cecelia's  Feb 8, 2008
I just loved this book. It is written in a similar style to Jan Karon's "Mitford" series. It's wonderful getting to know the characters in the town. They feel like friends by the second chapter. An excellent read!
A Miracle For St. Cecilia's  Jan 14, 2008
This is such heart warming story! The author, Katherine Valentine, should be commended as it is such a pleasure to read a story that has no gutter talk or bed scenes yet has such interesting characters and a positive message of faith.
A wonderful example of Hebrews Chapter 1-A+++!  Oct 29, 2007
St. Cecilia's Catholic Church has been a wonderful house of God for many many years, serving it's parishoners in good faith. But the building is in much disrepair, and funds are becoming less all the time as many of the people are older and can't contribute as they once did. The archbishop has ordered the church to close definitely after Easter
service. Father James, the priest of the church can hardly bear this thought and cannot see this happening. He knows there must be something he can do to stop this unnfortunate end, and through prayer and action tries to formulate a plan before it is too late. They are already into Lent, so there is not much time left.

Lori Peterson's husband Bob is desparately ill with leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. Time is getting short for Bob to find a donor, but with courage, faith, and many prayers, he receives a transplant which is successful. This is a real blessing as Bob wants to be there for his wife and 6-year-old daughter Sara.

Harriet Bedford has lived with sadness her whole life through when after losing one of her granddaughters, and daughter-in-law to a tragic accident, her son disowns her for believing in God. Peter was angry and bitter after losing his wife and first daughter, and could never trust God again. It goes on this way, until ironically when Father James is called to visit his best friends wedding, and discovers that Allison, Harriet's long lost grandchild is the bride. Peter has a massive heart attack before the wedding takes place, and is going to die for certain. At his bedside, Father James is there bringing him to God and faith that he will see heaven after he dies.

Through much prayer, and hope, St. Cecilia's might come to be saved. Especially when a holographic image of Mother Mary is shining up on the church, and suddenly there are mobs of people to witness it. The church begins to fill with people, and Father James prays that this is the miracle they have needed to help support and save the church. The image was made up by Matthew Metcalf though, who actually stole the equipment to set off this beautiful image from the college. And when he is discovered by the town Sheriff Bromley, he will have many questions to answer to, even though Matt had good intentions.

Father James knows that God has a hand in everything, and is thrilled beyond words at what takes place just before Easter Sunday, when it was to be the church's last Sunday ever.

A Miracle for St. Celia's  Mar 9, 2007
This was an excellent book. In places it will make you cry and in others it will make you laugh out loud. The characters were so real! The Catholic readers should all find something in it to bring back a smile or two!! I really enjoyed this book. I have recommended it to my family and friends and right now my teen-age daughter is enjoying reading it.
Very cute  Aug 30, 2006
This book was sweet and innocent, which are hard qualities to find today. It had lots of little giggles along the way. I recommend it. Catholics will really love it. There are lots of religious mentions throughout.
