StBenedictPressCSSPartnership-webSaint Benedict Press has been named exclusive publisher and distributor for Catholic Scripture Study International (CSS). The house will begin publishing and distributing CSS’ Bible and faith-related studies immediately, while working to create new studies and to make CSS’ library of content available in new ways.

“Over the past several years, I’ve watched my friends at Saint Benedict Press bring Bibles, Catholic courses and other faith-building resources to thousands of parishes and homes,” said Gail Buckley, founder and president of CSS. “In 2010, we partnered to create the CSS Bible, and I am thrilled about my new expanded partnership with Saint Benedict Press through which we will create even more CSS studies and further our mission of gaining souls for Christ.”

Conor Gallagher, vice president of Saint Benedict Press, considers it “an honor and blessing” to partner with Buckley and CSS.

“My family has been publishing and distributing Bibles for four generations, so it only seemed natural for us to partner with a wonderful woman known as ‘The Bible Lady,’ ” Gallagher said. “Gail has done amazing work with CSS, spreading the faith across the country and around the world through these enriching studies.”

CSS publishes 31 Bible and faith-related studies, which are held in hundreds of parishes, colleges and other group settings across the country. Studies are written by well-known scholars and Bible experts such as Scott Hahn, Steve Ray, Mike Aquilina and Mark Shea. More than 50,000 students have enrolled in CSS studies since the company’s 2003 founding.

The Saint Benedict Press parish sales team will add CSS studies to a catalog of products now found in more than 1,500 parishes, and will provide hundreds of parishes free sample studies on request. In coming weeks, select CSS individual studies will be made available to Saint Benedict Press’ network of stores and resellers.
