American Catholic Press (ACP) is a publisher of
hymnals, missals, books, and other materials for the liturgy, both
in celebration and education. Since 1929, our Leaflet Missal®prayerbook
has been helping people pray; it is the original missalette.
Since 1967, our principal hymnal, now called the American Catholic
Hymnbook, has been available as a help to prayer that is sung
by the congregation.
For your choir, you can review octavos available in
our online catalog, ACP Publications,
which also provides listings for some books on liturgy and similar
Hymns, Psalms, and other songs ACP has published have
been used all over the world, in many hymnals and other resources,
from Australia to Zambia. Such songs as Canticle
of the Gift and I
Lift My Soul have been translated into German, Latvian, and other
languages. Everywhere, these are songs people love to sing!
This web site gives you just a brief introduction to
us. Please write, call, or fax us, so we can come to know you, to
answer your questions, and to help you in your work.
