Paulist Press uses Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) to manage all permissions for use of its published content. Fair use is also determined by entering a request on the CCC Marketplace website.

Permissions granted free of charge, such as to faith-based nonprofits, are based on use of the material. Paulist Press will receive a Special Request from CCC if that is the case. Please enter all the details of your request via the link to the website below.
