When Saint Meinrad closed Abbey Press on June 30, publication of the booklets went on hiatus until September.
The eight-page inspirational – and informational – booklets have been published since 1988. Tackling tough topics such as depression, losing a child, facing cancer and others, CareNotes booklets have sold more than 100 million copies.
Some of the original titles became best sellers and are still being published. Titles like Losing Someone Close, Dealing With Anger and When Your Prayers Go Unanswered remain popular more than 25 years after their first appearance. Since the idea for CareNotes was conceived, more than 680 titles have been published.
More than 50,000 institutions and organizations worldwide have used CareNotes in their work. Hospital chaplains, hospice workers, palliative care professionals, social workers, bereavement coordinators, pastoral care ministers and funeral directors provide the booklets to those they counsel.
The 50 most popular titles of CareNotes are available at a new website, www.carenotes.com.
