    Dear Colleague in Ministry,

    It is with great pleasure that, as we write this, the J.S. Paluch Company is entering our 100th year of serving the Catholic Church and its faith communities. This continued service to the Church is more than just what we do. It is who we are.

    Our long history provides a strong foundation for responding to the diverse and changing needs of your parish and your parishioners. We take this privilege and responsibility very seriouslyour work is a labor of love that inspires our family and our employees on a daily basis.

    From the millions of weekly parish bulletins we print to the unique and inspiring content we provide for them; from the hymnals and missals we publish that enhance the prayer lives of so many to the books, calendars, music, and recordings our authors and artists create we are your partner in ministry.

    As the Church has endured changes and growth, so has J.S. Paluch. We were there with you through the Second Vatican Council and the more recent updates to the new English translation of The Roman Missal. We were incredibly honored when our efforts were recognized in 2012 by the Catholic Press Association (CPA), the Association of Catholic Publishers (ACP), and the Music Publishers Association (MPA). All three of these prestigious organizations awarded the WLP Deluxe Edition of The Roman Missal, Third Edition, first place in the categories of Design and Production and Graphic Excellence Book Design and Folios. Learn more on page

    37 and discover the new Personal Roman Missal Edition, ideal for study and travel.

    We are also very proud to announce the new design of the J.S. Paluch logo, seen here. This new logo bridges our past with our future. The original JSP logo featured the Chi-Rho, which invokes the crucifixion of Jesus. The new mark has a more modern version of the Chi-Rho, with the P also standing for Paluch. The two colors, divided by a strong diagonal, show the forward movement of a company that has been serving the

    Church for 100 years, and will continue to serve for many more. The new look is contemporary and shows the companys commitment to keeping up to date with the changing face of technology while never wavering in our support of the Church.

    With this monumental anniversary on the horizon, we invite you to join us in sharing some of the extraordinary memories and achievements of J.S. Paluch by browsing through this catalog, paying special attention to the timeline that runs along each page. Discover the historical moments that have shaped our history, as well as yours. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to serving you for 100 more years to come!
