About Us

Welcome to the Central Catholic Bookshop - the only Catholic bookshop in Melbourne’s CBD. We are conveniently located right next to St Francis’s Church and Melbourne Central shopping centre and railway station.

We are open 7 days a week and offer our customers a wide range of books and devotional items from the Catholic tradition. Our focus is proudly Catholic, and our staff are happy to help customers with advice.

We cater for the needs of every Catholic, from prayer books to spiritual reading, catechisms and encyclicals to children’s Bibles. Some of our most popular lines include Baptism, First Holy Communion and Confirmation gifts, CD’s of Gregorian chant, and books about pilgrimages and icons.

We also have a good selection of books on parenting, literature, church history, liturgy, and philosophy, all from a Catholic perspective … not to mention religious greeting cards, saint's medals, religious art, and lots more.

If you can’t visit us in person, you can browse and buy using our online shopping cart; or feel free to phone, fax or email your enquiry. We can also send books and other items anywhere in Australia and overseas.
