The following comes from a Dec. 14 story by Mary Sullivan on the site of Catholic San Francisco.

Since 1966, the Daughters of St. Paul have maintained a bookstore in the Bay Area where their ministry is evangelization through the media. Currently, Pauline Books & Media in Redwood City is the only Catholic bookstore in the Bay Area run by the order.

Increasingly high rent on their bookstore, plus a hard-to-spot storefront, recently prompted the sisters to buy a large building on Middlefield Avenue in Menlo Park. The plan is to establish the bookstore and chapel on the ground floor, and utilize the second floor as a convent. They dubbed the purchase “Miracle on Middlefield,” but as self-supporting missionary sisters, they now require a second miracle. They need to raise $2 million dollars to renovate the building.
