“Our barque is as good as our bytes!” – En Route
“Without fear we want to set out upon the digital sea,
embracing its unrestricted navigation with the same passion
that for 2,000 years has steered the barque of the Church.”
– Pope Benedict XVI

About the Publishing House:
A special welcome to all site visitors on this occasion of our third anniversary as a publishing house and first anniversary as a radio station!
In October of 2014, Ronda Chervin (philosophy professor emerita at Holy Apostles College & Seminary) and I planned out, with the marketing assistance of Shaun McAfee, founder of EpicPew, and editorial assistance of Jeremie Solak, graduate student at Holy Apostles College & Seminary, a new Catholic publishing house that would focus on Catholic spirituality and wisdom. In the past three years, En Route has published and made known to the Catholic world over five dozen books.
In October of 2016, under the leadership of Bob Olson, Catholic lay evangelist, and Ronda Chervin, En Route launched WCAT Radio for the purpose of advancing the themes of its books. WCAT now airs a couple dozen programs each week with over 600 podcasts on its website.
Thanks so very much to our wonderful authors, readers, show hosts and listeners for keeping us growing in our mission to share the sweetness and light of our Catholic faith with the world!

President, En Route Books and Media
