About Twenty-Third Publications


Twenty-Third Publications has been supporting and empowering Catholic parish leaders, both lay and ordained, for more than fifty years. We are committed to lifelong faith formation through wholistic catechesis at all stages of faith development.

Over these fifty years we have added thousands of products to our line: books, newsletters, seasonal and pastoral booklets, videos, DVDs, curriculum, and online content. Recently, we have produced a variety of products for pastoral teams and lifelong catechesis including The Threshold Bible Study, Divine Renovation, and the relaunch of Growing Faith.

We remain dedicated to our original publishing mission and continue to be motivated by Pope John XXIII, our spiritual leader and namesake. We joyfully produce quality products at reasonable prices for today’s priests, DREs, catechists, principals, teachers, parents, families, parish leaders, and RCIA teams.

It's been a great journey—and we're still going strong.
