Claretian Publications publishes content in print and online to help Catholics in the United States live their faith with hope and respond faithfully to the challenges of our time. Today Claretian Publications is one of the country’s most respected national Catholic periodical publishers and a leader in providing bilingual resources for Hispanic Catholics in the United States.
With this Chicago-based ministry, the Claretians are following in the footsteps of our founder, St. Anthony Claret (1807-1870), a prolific writer and publisher. Pope Pius XII called him the “Modern Apostle of the Good Press.” Claret had a strong commitment to evangelization through the “apostolate of the press.” The Claretians have 16 active publishing ministries in 13 countries.
The U.S. Claretians began our publishing ministry in 1935 with the magazine The Voice of St. Jude, which in 1963 became U.S. Catholic magazine. Today it is the country’s most award-winning religious general-interest magazine.
Supporting our long-standing commitment to Hispanic ministry, Claretian Publications’ Hispanic Ministry Resource Center provides culturally appropriate, bilingual resources to serve the needs of the rapidly growing Catholic Hispanic population in the United States.
