Due to COVID-19, our shipping process is slower than usual.

Read our COVID-19 Response: Updated for Shelter in Place Ordered by the State of Minnesota.

COVID-19 Response

We know there is much uncertainty for Catholic schools, parishes, their faith communities, and leadership in determining how best to respond to the public health crisis at hand. As people of goodwill, we imagine you want to keep your community safe and healthy, and also hope to provide spiritual support and connection.  

We wanted you to know: as of Monday, March 16, we at Saint Mary’s Press transitioned to a required Work-From-Home practice with the exception of a few positions whose duties require on-site presence. In those cases we have best practice protocols in place to ensure everyone’s safety and to do our part to flatten the curve.

Amidst this uncertainty, we continually place our trust in God’s abiding mercy and goodness. We pray for the wisdom to nurture the hearts of our communities with compassion, care, and support for all people, especially the young, the elderly and those most vulnerable.

We are here to help. If there's anything we can do to support you during this time, please let us know.

The Ministry Care Team is ready to help you in any way we can, even as we are working remotely from our homes. 


Shelter in Place: as ordered by the Governor of the State of Minnesota

In order to abide by the Governor's orders to help flatten the curve for COVID-19, and to limit the amount of time people have to leave their homes, we have determined our best course of action is to ship orders only on Wednesdays, through April 13. Any orders received before Wednesdays will ship, and after Wednesdays, we'll ship out the following Wednesday. We will keep you up to date as soon as this changes. We thank you for your patience–and thank you for helping us help our team members.
