It’s Time to Ask for the Grace We Need

We are consecrated women communicating Christ with our lives.

We are 100 years of collaboration among religious, clergy, and laity to help people connect with Jesus Christ and the Church in a secular digital culture. 

Following our model Saint Paul, we live Christ so that we can give Christ in today’s digital world. 

We are here for you. Join the mission. 



Working with the Daughters of St. Paul here at Pauline Books and Media for the past 14 years has been a great experience. Besides being a part of the Pauline mission, what has touched me the most is the way the sisters reached out to me when my sister was battling breast cancer. They were there for me and my family., even saying the rosary with us during those dark days. 

I know the book Midwife for Souls helped me cope with this struggle in my life so much and I'm grateful for the opportunity to assist others on the order line here at PBM to find just the right book that will help them too.
