Saint Mary’s Press will now distribute a number of books published by Christian Brothers Conference. This collaboration between Christian Brothers Conference and Saint Mary’s Press will streamline the ordering process for customers and make popular Lasallian titles more widely available.
“I am very grateful for the partnership that John Vitek (CEO) and Saint Mary’s Press have forged with the Conference,” said Brother Timothy Coldwell, FSC, General Councilor for the Lasallian Region of North America. “The Lasallian charism is a compelling one and this partnership will help us to share it with all educators.”

- The Letters of John Baptist de La Salle

Christian Brothers Conference and Saint Mary’s Press have a long history of collaborating on publications, dating back decades. The organizations revitalized the partnership with the 2018 publication of Let Us Remember: Stories of the Holy Presence of God edited by Brother George Van Grieken, FSC, which was the inaugural project of the Lasallian Publications Committee, established in 2016. The partnership continued to grow with the distribution of The Teacher’s Saint: John Baptist de La Salle, Patron Saint of Teachers (2019) by Brother George and its French version, Le Saint Enseignant : Jean-Baptiste de la Salle, Saint Patron des Éducateurs (2020), translated by Brother Pierre Ouatarra, FSC, and edited by Brother Florent Gaudreault, FSC, and Brother Edwin Arteaga, FSC, along with the updated Hermano Santiago: The Life and Times of Brother James Miller, FSC, (2019) by Brother Theodore Drahmann, FSC.
A number of books and other items will continue to be available through the Christian Brothers Conference online store, including Lasallian Liturgies, the annual pocket calendar, Live Jesus in Our Hearts wristbands (also available in French and Spanish) and the Twelve Virtues of a Good Teacher bookmark (also available in French and Spanish).
