The Bookshop where you are always welcome

The Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulburn has operated the Canberra Catholic Bookshop since September 1992. Over 10,000 books are on the shelves, obtained from over 2000 Australian book distributors, as well as a wide range of piety goods, from icons to candles to sacramental gifts.

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 work to keep up to date on the latest and most helpful selection of sacramental items, gifts, cards, seasonal goods, books and more. Our expert staff can offer advice to help you find what you are looking for, and have knowledge spanning from youth ministry to sacraments and beyond. We are planning to develop our website further, so it currently has limited offerings. However, you can call us to discuss sourcing a book or product and we can ship to you as we ship Australia wide. Freight costs depend on the item.

We would love to meet you, so if you can visit us in store, then plan a lunch or dinner in lovely, quaint downtown Manuka.

Please note that the Bookshop will be closed between 24 December and 10 January.
