We are a collegial and collaborative organization composed of Catholic publishers and producers of Catholic content across various media including books, audio, video, and music regardless of format (e.g., digital vs. print).
Our mission is to support a viable, vibrant, and diverse Catholic publishing environment in and outside the US. We seek to provide visibility to, advocacy for, and sustainability of published Catholic content. In particular, the ACP provides leadership to, among, and on behalf of its members, who serve the Catholic market.
We use its combined resources to achieve the following three goals.
- To promote the rich diversity of Catholic publishing so that an ever-growing number of Catholics use, value, and are formed by the treasury of Catholic content.
- To provide a strong unified voice for advocacy and collaboration with ecclesial leaders and the broader publishing industry.
- To provide skills development, peer support, industry resourcing, and professional networking to benefit its members as individuals and as publishing institutions.
