The economy seems to be hitting religion publishers as much as anyone else. On Wednesday, Our Sunday Visitor announced the acquisition of Harcourt Religion Publishers from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company. OSV plans to keep Harcourt’s management team, support staff, and field reps as well as its product line. Archbishop Donald Wuerl, the chairman of the USCCB’s Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis, said the acquisition “will contribute to a new day in catechesis.”
