saint mary's press® bible grant program

Saint Mary’s Press Bible Grant Program is made available by Saint Mary’s Press based on a percentage of annual sales and from grants of the Lasallian Education Fund of the Christian Brothers of the Midwest. The purpose of the program is to provide Bibles to inner-city and rural poor schools or youth-serving ministries, to youth in detention centers throughout the United States, and to adult inmates in prisons in the United States. (Sorry, we cannot ship outside the United States.)

Since 2000, Saint Mary's Press has donated Catholic Youth Bibles® to inner-city and rural disadvantaged Catholic high schools and ministries, youth in detention centers, and adult inmates in prisons throughout the United States.

We now also have available La Biblia católica para niños, The African American Catholic Youth Bible®, and The Catholic Youth Bible® The Gospel of Luke, as well as The Catholic Youth Bible®. Schools and parishes may request up to a total of 48 Bibles per year, all the same or mixed. 

To donate funds to this program or to receive more information on Saint Mary's Press Bible Grant Program for inner-city and rural disadvantaged Catholic young people, contact Br. Frank Carr at (800) 533-8095.
