Claretian Publications publishes print and digital content to help Catholics in the United States and Canada 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 is a leader in providing bilingual resources for Hispanic Catholics in the United States.

This Claretian ministry follows in the footsteps of our founder, St. Anthony Claret, a prolific writer and publisher. Our founder had a strong commitment to evangelization through the “apostolate of the press.” Pope Pius XII called Claret the “Modern Apostle of the Good Press.” The Claretians currently have 16 active publishing ministries in 13 countries.

The Claretian Missionaries in the United States began its 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, and its digital and social media platforms reach hundreds of thousands of readers, listeners, and viewers every month.

Claretian Publications, in coordination with the Claretian Missionaries USA-Canada Province, also collaborates in publishing both original books and translated works from other Claretian publishing ministries.
