March is off to a busy start as LPi works to help church customers nationwide build their vibrant parishes. From stewardship days to seminars, LPi offers churches the best practice tips and practical tools they need to engage their parishioners and evangelize their community.
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…)
For many parishioners at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Carmel, Indiana, “stewardship” was synonymous with fiscal generosity. On Saturday, January 20th, Tracy Earl Welliver led over ninety staff members and ministry leaders in a daylong immersive exploration of stewardship as a way of life.
What happens to your parish brand identity when your parish collaborates or clusters with others? LPi’s Vice President of Marketing, Carin Winghart, shared best practice tips at the Archdiocese of Milwaukee’s G3 conference on Thursday, January 11th.
The conference was held at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in Milwaukee, WI and drew attendees across ministerial lines, from pastors and DREs to business administrators and IT professionals.

With the late November emphasis on shopping, supporting small businesses, and hot online deals, we know it can be easy to lose sight of what really matters. #GivingTuesday is an international day of generosity. Individuals and organizations donate to worthy causes around the world. LPi is grateful to have partnered with three Catholic organizations building vibrant communities, matching donations dollar for dollar this Giving Tuesday.
Our Giving Tuesday results are in! Together we raised $11,960! Because of your generosity, Catholic Climate Covenant will have more resources to inspire and equip people and institutions to care for creation and care for the poor. Haiti180 will have support to build infrastructure changing lives in Haiti. Life Teen International has increased ability to reach today’s teens, restore parishes, transform lives, and reclaim culture.
Together we can build vibrant parishes, a vibrant Church, and help one another change the world.
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.
The life of an everyday steward is a life for all. Hundreds of Utah Catholics unpacked a stewardship spirituality over the course of three days this October. The stewardship presentation featured a series of workshops offered by LPi’s Tracy Earl Welliver.

On this global day of charity, LPi is collecting donations and matching your generosity dollar for dollar. $10 becomes $20. $100 becomes $200.

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.
