Permission Guidelines during COVID-19
As more and more parishes seek worship and faith formation resources for these unusual times, Church Publishing is working to ease that process by sharing our permissions guidelines and practices. Learn more here.

Respecting the copyright law is a way of protecting yourself and your church or institution from lawsuit. Having permission in writing establishes a paper trail for your protection. And most importantly, it allows us to pay the composer or author for their work.
