The Liturgical Press

For thousands of readers across the world, the name “Collegeville” is synonymous with solid and expressive liturgy, the Benedictine monastic life, and publications for both the popular and the academic market produced by The Liturgical Press, a publishing house that celebrated its seventy-fifth anniversary in April 2001. “The Press” consists of sixty or so monks and lay people who publish five journals, two seasonal Mass guides, a Sunday Bulletin series, and a steady flow of books, compact disks, and CD-ROMs on the liturgy, theology, monastic studies, and Scripture. Its three imprints—Liturgical Press Books, Michael Glazier Books, and Pueblo Books—provide its pastoral readership with liturgical books and parish ministry materials, and its academic readership with textbooks and commentaries on Scripture, theology, and monastic studies, as well as reference works for the seminary and college classroom and the library market. In publishing journals, parish periodicals, approximately seventy new titles each year, and maintaining a catalog of nearly a thousand titles, The Liturgical Press furthers its mission to “actively proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.”
