Welcome to the Illuminare Publications website. This site is a resource for Catholic parishes–especially liturgical musicians, liturgy directors, and pastors–that will offer liturgical and sacred music publications, catechetical articles, training resources, a complete library of digital sacred music scores, and much more.
Building upon the success of the popular Simple English Propers (CMAA, 2011), Illuminare Publications seeks to be a liturgical publisher for the 21st century. We are committed to and inspired by digital and social media and plan to utilize them to their fullest capacities in service of the sacred liturgy and of the Catholic faith. We seek to be a resource to parishes in the “new era of liturgical renewal” that lies ahead–and with the new translation of the Roman Missal has already begun–in the life of the Church. Learn more about us.
It is an exciting time to be a Catholic. In the face of public and secular attack, the Church persists in faith and the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that the renewal of the sacred liturgy is at the heart of this battle and we consider our work to be at the front lines.
We hope that we can join you in your work of proclaiming the truth and of authentically celebrating the sacred liturgy which is “the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed”, and “the font from which all her power flows.” (CCC 1074).
