The Bookshop where you are always welcome


The Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn has operated the Canberra Catholic Bookshop since September 1992.
We are located in Manuka, just behind St. Christopher’s Cathedral, where there is free parking in front of our building and lots of parking in the neighbourhood.
Our hours are Monday through Friday between 9:30 am – 5 pm. & Saturdays 9am – 1pm.

We carry the classic Catholic writings and educational material as well as Sunday and weekday Missals. We carry many authors who discuss the issues that relate to Catholics today that inspire and help us deepen our faith.

We will often special order books for our customers so let us know if there is something we can order for you, if we don’t have it in stock we will do our best to get it. If you are a school or parish, placing a large order, please allow us the time to be able to special order the quantity you need.

We also stock a wide range of seasonal gift ideas to inspire, religious goods and a range of sacramental gifts to celebrate the special occasion in a child’s life.

Our staff can offer advice to help you find what you are looking for.

We can ship Australia wide. Freight costs depend on the item.

Most of all, we would love to meet you, so if you can, visit us in- store in lovely, quaint Manuka.
