Art & Literature


Our parish is blessed with many already published authors and aspiring authors. The following parishioners have already published books, articles, etc… and we encourage you to share in their stories!

Kathleen Olowin: “Angels in My Heart” A brief synopsis of Kathleen’s Story can be found here.

Fran Cannon Slayton: Perhaps you will see elements of Cursillo and the Knights of Columbus in parishioner Fran Cannon Slayton’s novel, When the Whistle Blows (Penguin/Philomel, 2009).   It tells “the engrossing tale of young Jimmy Cannon, who is growing from boy to man at the very same time that the most important elements in his life—his father and the steam-engine trains he has loved since childhood—are chugging toward their last breaths . . . Taking place on a series of seven All Hallow’s Eves, the story follows Jimmy as he engages in childish pranks, plays in the championship football game, and spies on the secret railroad society that his father and brothers belong to . . .  [The Society]  turns out to be centered not on the railroad after all, but on faith, brotherhood and love. An unassuming masterpiece.”  – Kirkus  Available in hardcover, paperback and audio on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders and Independent Bookstores.  Signed copies available by calling New Dominion Bookshop.  See Fran’s website for more information:
