The Editora Santuário publishing company was founded in 1900, with a clear pastoral purpose: to promote evangelization through the press and especially among the poor. They are the reason and the identification of our existence.
The work for the poor is something highly cherished by Redemptorists, the heirs of the missionary charisma of St. Alphonsus. The creation of Editora Santuário publishing company is connected to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Aparecida, by uniting the faith of pilgrims to a communication mean. That effort gave birth to the Jornal Santuário de Aparecida /Sanctuary of Aparecida Newspaper, which has been printed all through those years.
