Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)



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 materials.Click and Listen!

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.
