CHARLOTTE, NC (May 12, 2014) -Saint Benedict Press, Your Source for Catholic Bibles, announced today it has been named exclusive publisher and distributor for Catholic Scripture Study International (CSS).

Saint Benedict Press will immediately begin publishing and distributing CSS's Bible and faith-related studies, while working with CSS to create new studies and to make CSS's vast library of content available in new ways.

"Over the past several years I've watched my friends at Saint Benedict Press bring Bibles, Catholic Courses, and other faith-building resources to thousands of parishes and homes," said Gail Buckley, founder and President of CSS. "In 2010 we partnered to create the CSS Bible, and I am thrilled about my new expanded partnership with Saint Benedict Press through which we will create even more CSS studies and further our mission of gaining souls for Christ."

"I feel confident that I am following God's Plan for CSS," continued Buckley. "As I've always said, this is His Program, not mine; I am only His steward. He called me to start it; He gave me the ideas and the grace to do it and through the years brought many wonderful people into my life to help me. Now He has brought about this partnership."

"My family has been publishing and distributing Bibles for four generations," said Conor Gallagher, VP of Saint Benedict Press, "so it only seemed natural for us to partner with a wonderful woman known as 'The Bible Lady.' Gail has done amazing work with CSS, spreading the Faith across the country through these enriching programs. For Saint Benedict Press to partner with Gail and the wonderful folks associated with CSS is an honor and blessing."

"I share Gail's excitement at this partnership," said CSS executive director Sandra Fountain. "Joining forces with Saint Benedict Press provides the team and resources to better serve our wonderful students and study leaders, and to bring CSS to many new parishes and homes."

CSS publishes 31 Bible and faith-related studies. CSS studies are led in parishes, colleges, and other group settings across the country, and are available as well to individuals at home. Courses include explorations of individual books of the Bible such as Genesis, Exodus, and The Gospel of John, as well as faith-related studies such as Humanae Vitae and A Scriptural Study of Angels. CSS studies are authored by well-known scholars and Bible experts such as Dr. Scott Hahn, Steve Ray, Mike Aquilina, and Mark Shea.

Founded in Charlotte, NC in 2003, CSS has grown rapidly and is present in hundreds of parishes today. Over 50,000 students have enrolled in CSS studies in the past eleven years. Among the seven bishops, seven priests, and twelve laymen and women on the CSS Advisory Board are Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Bishop Peter Jugis, Bishop Michael Burbidge, Dr. Mary Healy, Dr. John Bergsma, and Patrick Madrid.

Working together, Gail Buckley and Saint Benedict Press will continue the growth of CSS and expand its reach through a variety of sales and marketing efforts. The Saint Benedict Press parish sales team will add CSS studies to a catalog of products now found in over 1,500 parishes, and will provide hundreds of parishes free sample studies on request. In coming weeks, select CSS individual studies will be made available to Saint Benedict Press' network of stores and resellers.

The CSS study Program will continue to be available for purchase at, and may also be ordered from Study leaders, students and new inquirers may contact Saint Benedict Press toll free at (800) 437-5876 or at
