This is a joyful story celebrating the determination of a boy as he grows into manhood.

The story begins one beautiful Sunday morning with seven-year-old Matthew. While attending church with his family, Matthew hears a calling to the priesthood. Later in the day, Matthew invites his sister Sarah and best friend John to “play church” with him in his tree house. A wondrous transformation takes place.

In The Tree House follows Matthew from childhood to early adulthood. He comes alive to us as we learn about his good deeds and evolving relationship with God. As Matthew follows his dream, he receives ongoing support and compassion from his family, friends and the clergy.

Written by Archbishop Cyril Aphrem Karim.
Illustrated by Brian Aquaire.
