We encourage all Catholic authors to pursue publication of their materials through any of the other Catholic publishing houses in the meantime.

About the Publishing House:
A special welcome to all site visitors on this occasion of our sixth anniversary as a publishing house and fourth 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, a new Catholic publishing house that would focus on Catholic spirituality and wisdom. In the past six years, ENROUTE has published and made known to the Catholic world almost 150 books.
In October of 2016, under the leadership of Bob Olson, Catholic lay evangelist, and Ronda Chervin, ENROUTE launched WCAT Radio for the purpose of advancing the themes of its books. WCAT now shares 72 programs each week with almost 10,000 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!
