Shop www.sunrisemarian.com , a Canadian Catholic online store for books and media, gifts, devotionals and much more!  At Sunrise Marian Distribution we feel that the intercession of the Blessed Mother was greatly influential in our decision to start a Catholic bookstore in 1996.  We’ve adopted St. Louis de Montfort’s quote, “The easiest way to Jesus is through Mary” as our motto and have placed our business under her protection and mantel.  Our goal is to help people grow in their personal and spiritual lives while deepening their relationship with God, the Blessed Mother, and the Saints, through trustworthy books, faith formation, bible studies, gifts, music, and films.
