About Us

Founded over 125 years ago by Cardinal Herbert Vaughan, Bishop of Salford 1872 - 1892, the Catholic Truth Society (CTS) is a Catholic Charity established to promote the circulation of theological, catechetical and educational books and publications to Catholics and the wider community. In 2010 the CTS Bookshop moved from Manchester City Centre to the Cathedral Centre behind Salford Cathedral becoming known as Cathedral Centre Books. Our mission is to make Jesus Christ known by supporting the work of Parishes and Schools in teaching the Christian Faith, as well as helping individuals to grow in their personal faith journey. As well as Christian Books, the shop sells a full range of statues, icons, rosaries, cards and religious gifts etc. for all occasions and liturgical seasons! In 2017 the online shop was launched to serve the Christian Community across the United Kingdom.
