Silver Cross Catholic Store

Silver Cross Catholic Store is in western Ohio and in the heart of many small devoted Catholic communities. The store was founded in 2006 by Ann Stidd to provide authentically Catholic items for the people.

The name of Silver Cross goes back to the story of the early German-Dutch settlers who unearthed a silver cross while establishing the now known Fort Loramie. Approximately 100 years prior to their arrival, an early fort and trading post had been established. These later settlers took the silver cross to be a sign that they were in the right place and that the faith had come before them.

On All Saints Day of 2021 the new owner, Missy and husband Jim Bennett purchased the store with the intent to continue to provide authentically Catholic items and resources for the people.

“Ann has done something beautiful for our people,” states Missy. “We are not meant to journey alone, and this beautiful store is an oasis; providing friendship, conversation and items that add richness to our Catholic faith.”

The store has become an opportunity to share in the journey and provide catechesis to our people. First Saturdays are devoted to our Blessed Mother and typically a “Story Time with Sisters” occurs. The Sisters of the Children of Mary drive nearly two hours to share time with our children and families. People wonder how the children fit in the store. Designed with racks on wheels, the back area of the store is converted to an open space for the children, book signings, coffee & chats with priests and local experts. A women’s and men’s Catholic ministry program are coordinated through the store and offers every other month gatherings for respite, friendship and growth in knowledge of the Faith. The store also provides book studies. The larger groups are often held outside of the store location.

Missy will tell you that they love to get good Catholic books in hands of the people. And are always hopeful to create a new friendship with a Saint through a beautiful statue, prayer card and a classic read. “Our Catholic faith is so rich, so beautiful and these Catholic items can only provide more richness and more beauty to our home and lives,” states Missy, “Truly, we are richly blessed to be the shopkeepers and share the journey with His people.”

friends: Thank You!

For more than 80 years, the mission begun by Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., has remained the same: to promote the spiritual well-being of families around the world through daily prayer, especially the Rosary. We couldn’t have done it without our valued partners in the Catholic Marketing Network.

To help spread that message, Holy Cross Family Ministries has relied on the friendly and faithful service of the Catholic business leaders, retailers and apostolates who make up CMN. For many years, you have been the first line of ministry work in helping us reach a Catholic audience hungry for faith-based products and services.

Your efforts have helped us reach out to countless families, educators, and parishes who needed to hear the messages first uttered by the “Rosary Priest”: “The family that prays together stays together” and “A world at prayer is a world at peace.”

You have enabled us to encourage families through our growing family of ministries, including Family Rosary, Family Theater Productions, Catholic Mom, Father Peyton Family Institutes, the Peyton Institute for Domestic Church Life and the newest ministry, the Museum of Family Prayer.

Our mission: to promote the spiritual well-being of families around the world through daily prayer, especially the Rosary.

Holy Cross Family Ministries is also grateful to the CMN membership for continuously supporting and praying for the Canonization of founder, Venerable Patrick Peyton, through participation in the Father Peyton Prayer Guild, one worldwide prayer team with an important spiritual cause.

Whether it has been through your prayers, purchasing from our wholesale program or promoting our online programming and events, you have helped us reach out to those in need of spiritual guidance and instruction. And, as a gesture of appreciation, HCFMstore.org offers a 50% discount to CMN members to support you in your ministry.

Thank you. May God bless you and your families during the holy seasons of Advent and Christmas.

Dear CMN Partners,

Please know you are in our prayers at The Father Peyton Center, at our Rosary and Mass. Join us by tuning in LIVE Monday – Friday at noon ET via Facebook Facebook.com/familyrosary/live

Nourish yourself during this Advent and Christmas season. The ministry you perform in your stores is important to the people in your community. You are on the front lines and often the first place someone goes when returning to the faith.

We are here to support your work and are grateful for all the ways you support our ministry. May the blessings of this joyous season remain with you all year long.

From the team at Holy Cross Family Ministries.

How much do you really know about St. Joseph? He was once a little boy and played like all children. He had royal blood, and could have been a king. He was a young man when he married Mary. He was a wonderful father to Jesus. He was the brave and steadfast protector of the Holy Family. He’s the model of manhood. He’s worked many miracles and is a powerful intercessor for us and he had a pure, chaste heart. Join Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, as he tells the dynamic and inspiring story of St. Joseph, our spiritual father and the “Terror of Demons.” You’ll learn that, whenever you need help, just “Go to Joseph!”

Smith, Jr., call on all of us to turn to St. Joseph, entrust ourselves, our children and families, our Church, and our world to our spiritual father’s loving care.

Serving the Catholic community by helping people send the encouragement of their prayers

Novena Cards was founded to help people have a tangible way to let someone know they were prayed for. They offer Novena, Rosary, Divine Mercy Chaplet, Holy Hour, or "I offered my Mass for you" Catholic greeting cards, in addition to prayer cards, prayer planning kits, and art prints.

The inspiration for Novena Cards came over a decade ago when founder and artist, Kristin Bryant, couldn’t find the right card to send friends after praying for them - “I wanted something more meaningful than a text message or email, but it didn’t exist.” When her dental hygiene career was impacted by the global pandemic, it opened up the opportunity to launch Novena Cards.

The physical cards, combined with a personal connection of someone praying for them, help break through the noise of our digital world and share the gift of our Catholic faith. Each greeting card includes information about the related devotion on the back - a great way to not only encourage people through prayer, but also to serve as a tool for evangelization.

Kristin incorporates traditional content of the Catholic faith, original watercolor paintings, and contemporary graphic design elements into her artwork. This mix of modern aesthetic and traditional content brings a unique element to the Catholic cards and gifts market.

Touching hearts through the gift of prayer

Since their launch on Pentecost Sunday in 2020, Kristin continues to hear touching stories of how recipients of their cards are inspired and encouraged - “I love hearing customer stories about the joy their loved one felt when they received our cards as a gift. We’ve also heard about how family relationships were deepened in the faith through conversations around our cards, and how sending our cards has also helped them grow in their own prayer life through praying for others.”

Their cards appeal to both the younger generation who are hungry to learn more about the faith, and older generations looking for special ways to connect with their loved ones through prayer. From special occasions such as sacraments and birthdays to specific novenas prayed throughout the year, their cards cover the most popular prayers and devotions prayed for loved ones.

Supporting Catholic businesses reach customers in a noisy world

In addition to their online website, Novena Cards also continues to expand through Catholic bookstores and gift shops. Providing products that encourage taking the time to pray for others and send a card in our culture of “busy busy”, their individual card packaging, and their providing personalized recommendations on product mix and quantities to each store are some of the things their resellers appreciate. “We are truly blessed to be able to partner with other Catholic small businesses through serving them and their customers”, Kristin said.

One example of this type of partnership is with Elliot and Chonci Lekawa, owners of Holy Trinity Catholic Books and Gifts who recently noted, "we recently made the decision to cancel our auto shipment with DaySpring. We knew there had to be something better out there for our guests. God provided better than we anticipated - we met Darren and Kristin Bryant at the [2023 CMN Momentum conference] and they have been like true partners working with us."
