Additional product information

More information
WATERMEAD STORY: Words of Prayer and Encouragement was the first book published by the Watermead Publishing Apostolate. We have begun with music publishing - then, "What about publishing a parish prayer book?" Father John Daley, parish priest, suggested to the Catholic communities of St Theresa's, Birstall, and Sacred Heart, Rothley - and favourite prayers started arriving. The prayers were collated, checked for copyright permissions and put together to form a book in 1994. The First Edition first edition of "Words of Prayer and Encouragement" (a buff cover with gold lettering) was printed and sold out within three weeks. After repriniting the book continued its popularity and in 1997 the book was re-edited and printed in partnership with the Catholic Printing Company of Farnworth. Our third and present edition was published by Watermead in 2003, having been again edited and updated. Over the years we have sold thousands of copies of this book and shall continue to republish and update as needed. One warming story was the arrival of an envelope in 2006 containing a very "used" copy of the first buff edition, along with a request for a possible replacement. Apparently, the book had been the favourite companion of an elderly relative and now, as it was literally falling apart, the enquirer wanted to surprise them with another copy. Of course we obliged, thrilled that the book had obviously brought such comfort.
