Saint Albert's Press

St Albert's Press LogoSaint Albert's Press was the publishing house of the British Province of Carmelites, a religious order within the Roman Catholic Church (registered charity 1061342). These books are now sold from the Shrine of Saint Jude and its Shrine Office.

The Shrine distributes Christian books and media, especially materials relating to the spirituality and history of the Carmelites.

The Press was named after Saint Albert Avogadro of Vercelli (d. 1214), the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem who gave the hermits on Mount Carmel a document setting out their way of life. This became known as the Rule of Saint Albert. As the first 'publisher' of a Carmelite document, Saint Albert is a worthy patron of our Press, and he is depicted in our logo (pictured right).
