Using the Store Search
How do I search for items?
To search, use the 'Search' box that appears on the right hand side of our site.

To search, enter the title, the author's name, an item number (ISBN), or a description in the Search field. When you submit your search, you will see a page listing all products that match your search criteria in alphabetical order.

Many of our items are grouped by subject for your convenience and appear when you click on the 'Shop By Subject' link.

Why can't I find your Journals, Bulletins, Mass Guides, or Loose-leaf Lectionary when I search?
At this time our subscription items (Journals, Bulletins, Mass Guides, and Loose-leaf Lectionary) are not a part of the online store and these items must be ordered separately. They can be ordered online, but do not utilize the same shopping cart as the book items. As a result, they are not included in the search function which covers only our single purchase items such as books and CDs.

Top of Page

What if I can't find what I'm looking for?
If you can't locate a product, the product may not be available in our Online Store because it is a subscription item (Journals, Mass Guides, Bulletins, or Loose-leaf Lectionary) and cannot be searched, or your search criteria does not match the information about the product stored in our online database. You may want to broaden your search if you entered a very specific term.

If you still can't find what you are looking for, please contact us by email at sales@litpress.org or by phone at 1-800-858-5450 (M-F 8:00 am-8:00 pm CT).

The Checkout and Order Process
How do I checkout once I have items in my shopping cart?
If you have placed items in your Shopping Cart, but are not at the Order Detail page, click the Shopping Cart link at the top right of the web page which will bring you to the Order Detail page. From the Order Detail page click on the "Proceed to Checkout" button at the bottom of the page.

If you have not logged into your account, you will need to do so at this point. If you do not have an account you will need to create one. Please refer to the Online Account section of this page for questions regarding the creation of an account.

Once logged in you will be brought to the Order Confirmation page. Review all of the information on the page, including billing information, shipping information (if different), and the items in your cart. Select a payment method. If paying with a credit card, select the type, fill in your number (with no dashes and no spaces), and the expiration date.

Click the Submit Order button at the bottom of the page. A new page will appear with a receipt of your order. You will also be sent a confirmation email.

Why don't my subscription items and my books appear in the same cart?
At this time our subscription items (Journals, Mass Guides, Bulletins, and Loose-leaf Lectionary) are not a part of the main Online Store and need to be ordered separately. When ordered online, these items will appear in a Shopping Cart similar to the main shopping cart and you will be required to have an account. You only need to create one account and it can be used to order books and subscription items. If you desire to purchase any of the subscription items and any book items, they will need to be placed as separate orders on the website.

How can I find a copy of a book that is no longer in print?
Check one of the following online resources to begin your search:

Amazon.com partners with many used and independent bookstores, who often have stock of out of print books. Liturgical Press does not carry stock of discontinued product. Searching at Amazon or another online source is the most reliable way of locating a specific book you are seeking. The best way to search on the internet is by using the International Standard Book Number, or ISBN, which is either a 10- or 13-digit number, and may be printed somewhere on your book, and is unique to that item. A search using only title, author, or description may yield more search results than can reasonably be narrowed down to find the product you seek. Click Here to search by ISBN, Title, Author or other criteria on Amazon.com.
