Q: Do you only stock Catholic gifts and books?

A: We are truly a Christian book store and gift shop. We do carry products, gifts and books appropriate for Catholic sacraments, but we strive to create a shopping environment comfortable for all Christian faiths.

Q: What is the difference between Baptism and Christening? What type of gift should I buy? 

A: Christening vs Baptism: Although the words Christening and Baptism are often used interchangeably, each ceremony holds its own significance and meaning. Christenings are naming ceremonies, where children are given a Christian name. Baptisms are one of the seven sacraments in the Catholic church. Christenings typically occur for babies, while baptisms can be held for adults, depending on the denomination. For more information on the differences, please click here.

Q: What type of bible do I need to order for _______?

A: There are many different types of bibles – from leather bound to large print, King James to New American. The combinations are numerous and often confusing. Heavenly Blessings and Gifts stocks a strong selection of bibles, based on what our shoppers request and purchase, but there is no one standard bible that we can recommend. For more information on this topic, we invite you to see our post on the different types of bibles here or stop by the store to talk with Janet about what would be the right choice for your needs. We can order any bible you need (please allow two weeks for special orders).

Q: Do you offer imprinting services? 

A: We can order any bible with a name imprinted for a nominal fee. We do not offer in-store imprinting at this time. If you purchase a bible at Heavenly Blessings and Gifts and would like it imprinted locally, we invite you to visit DeLuca’s Expressions in Gold in Covington (just over the Bogue Falaya bridge).

Q: Do you carry the St. Joseph Home Seller Statue?

A: We do! This is one of our best-selling items. For more on St. Joseph, see our post here.

Q: Does it really work?

A: We’ve never had a return on a St. Joseph statue – and a little prayer can’t hurt anyone looking to sell their house!

A: Our physical address:

4700 Highway 22, Unit 10
Mandeville, Louisiana, 70471

We are located in the Parkview Plaza Shopping Center, just down from the entrance to Beau Chêne.
