It was when I was the secretary at the Catholic Student Center at the University of Memphis that I first found out that there were catalogs for church stuff just like there were catalogs for everything else. For some reason I found it unspeakably odd and rather amusing to look through pages of men modelling clerical shirts or vestments, and ads for palms and ashes. I couldn't believe that you could order ashes.
This company, Autom, is probably the biggest supplier of church goods in the US. Because I have ordered things for my PRE class from them, I got this in my email today. "Hurry while supplies last!" That really cracks me up.
