Since the birth of our company in 1972, employees and customers have known us as Liturgical Publications. We began as a local company providing ad-supported printed products for our Catholic parish customers. Over the past several decades, our market has expanded considerably.
We are a national stewardship and communications leader, offering a broad suite of digital, print, and coaching products to our church customers. While the Catholic Church remains by far our largest non-profit customer segment, we now work with non-profits across a wide spectrum of sectors.
To best showcase the breadth of our offerings and customer base, as well as to better align with our corporate growth strategy, “Liturgical Publications” will now go to market simply as “LPi.” (more…)

LPI’s Tracy Earl Welliver was on the road again in November providing a variety of stewardship events and services to parishes across the United States.
First, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee hosted the Spirituality of Stewardship Conference for Leaders for close to 700 people from across the region on November 3rd and 4th. Tracy spoke at four sessions on the topic of bringing young people into a stewardship way of life. He emphasized that our youth are the Church of today and not just of tomorrow. The Body of Christ needs all parts, regardless of age, if it is to truly preach the Gospel effectively to the world. He urged the participants to make clear to our youth that we need them just as much as they need the Church.

Sharing Stewardship in Utah
October 24th ended a three-day Everyday Stewardship parish mission at St. George Catholic Church in St. George, Utah. LPI’s Tracy Earl Welliver began the event by speaking at all the weekend Masses about how our baptism places an indelible mark on us claiming us for Christ. We have to ask the question, “What do we really own and what owns us?” Hopefully we can answer with conviction that we have offered all to God and that we belong to Him.
