About

 We have been producing Catholic products since 2016. Our products are practical reminders of our Catholic Faith. It is, after all, the cornerstone that keeps us sane and grounded. It Reminds us of who we are, how we should live and ultimately where we are going. The Deo Gratias Company is proud and humbled to work with the Holy Spirit to bring products to market that glorify the Lord and his Church.

We understand that there is a growth of social media due to an increase in technology in our present day. Even public schools are increasing the use of electronic, visual aids in their methods of education. The problem is not necessarily technology itself, but how it is used. Our young people are bombarded with secular media, which has used its power to influence many. That is why our goal is to use modern media to educate and inspire young people to not only learn the Faith, but to imitate the saints whom they read about. Our graphic novels are packed with sound catechesis and historical accuracy, all packaged in an exciting and attractive format!

Your contribution will help us produce our newest project: "Our Lady of Guadalupe the Graphic Novel". It is both historically accurate and is packed with beautiful illustrations of the miraculous events that took place in Mexico more than a thousand years ago! We even created an easy-to-read Coloring Book for children to express their creativity while learning. After printing the books in May, we will be shipping them off by the Summer of 2018.

Description:

  • 9x12 hard-bound book
  • 50 full-color pages
  • Historically accurate story-line
  • Pro-Life theme since Our Lady of Guadalupe is "the patroness of the unborn"
  • 100% CATHOLIC

Risks and challenges

The project is currently in production and will be printed by May. We will be using a printing company which has helped us with numerous other projects in the past. The only risk is in the shipping service, which we have had no problem with so far. We will be publishing in May and should be delivering by the Summer of 2018.

The biggest challenge will be to fund raise and reach our goal. Please share this Kickstarter with your family and friends and help us spread the truth of the Catholic Faith!

In order to keep you, our generous BACKERS, always updated on our project's current development, please continue to visit us here at our Kickstarter page!

God bless!
