USA :

Bayard is present in the States in the publishing industry mainly through the trademark Twenty-Third, acquired in 1999. This trademark, born after Vatican II, is extremely strong among American parishes. Its catalogue includes all facets of the pastoral (catechism, spirituality, etc.) and provides tools to those who want to understand and develop their faith. Twenty-Third also publishes academic titles and daily meditation leaflets for Lent and Advent, as well as children books. Certain titles from the catalogue, such as Catholic Custom and Tradition, have been sold at over a million copies. The Twenty-Third trademark, with over 500 titles and 40 new releases every year, is also available through bookstores.
