Since 1900, Xavier Society for the Blind has been providing braille materials to patrons of all ages, both lay and religious, in order for them to learn about, develop and practice their Faith.
Xavier Society provides The Propers of the Sunday Mass – these are the readings, responses and prayers for the Mass on Sundays, special Feast Days and Solemnities. Many of Xavier Society clients are lectors in their parishes and use the propers to serve their communities.
Xavier Society offers a catalog on our secure online catalog of over 800 braille titles, ranging from biographies of saints to theological dissertations and even contemporary titles by popular authors like Matthew Kelly and Father James Martin, SJ.
Xavier Society produces the magazine The Catholic Review, distributed in braille three times a year. It is a compilation of outstanding articles from periodicals such as America magazine, Catholic Digest, Our Sunday Visitor, Maryknoll and many more. In addition to The Catholic Review, they also send their magazine, The Xavier Review, three times a year in braille. The Xavier Review rounds up the latest news from Xavier Society, recent additions in braille and audio, and other useful information. Both The Catholic Review and The Xavier Review are available for download in audio and BRF for patrons.
Xavier Society welcomes and encourage special requests as they arise. For instance, each year we regularly braille selected catechetical textbooks (especially as needed for young people in catechism classes), major Vatican documents, and prayers and devotions for specific celebrations or religious groups. We are always open to suggestions of new materials that our clients may need or want, and we always try to fill special requests when we receive them. Please keep in mind we have one transcriber in house, so we try to accommodate special requests when we can, but it is not always possible.
