A valuable reference work. The trusted resource. Still.
This annual, up-to-date, comprehensive guide to the Catholic Church has been the reference work to which students, teachers, researchers, homilists, writers, and media professionals have turned for more than 100 years. This is the resource on which they have relied for solid, orthodox Catholic teaching and information.
This is the reference work with the in-depth index that makes it easy to find specific, exact information. This is the resource endorsed by Archbishop John Foley, President of the Pontifical Council on Social Communication at the Vatican, who writes: "It is an annual masterpiece!"
