J.S. Paluch: Preparing for the 100th Anniversary

Friday has dawned; sunny and beautiful here in the Midwest.

The J.S. Paluch company, of which World Library Publications is its music and liturgy division, will be celebrating 100 years in service to the Church in 2013. We have been collecting all kinds of stories, fun facts, and photos as we prepare for this milestone. I wanted to share a photo of one of the original printing presses used to print materials for parishes. This press is displayed in our lobby here in Franklin Park, Illinois.

On the wall above the press are some of the actual plates used for printing on this press. I snapped a photo of one of the plates:

It says "Prayer Booklets Made Especially for Congregational Praying and Singing." I think this is so cool. I feel privileged to be a part of a company that has been helping the praying and singing Church for so long. And it's great that the title of this blog kind of reaches back into those earlier generations.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
