Majellan Publications began in 1949 with the first issue of the Majellan magazine. This was published by the Redemptorist Congregation, a religious order, from their community in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia.
Majellan Family Magazine is in its 71st year and from the beginning, the magazine has sought to foster family life in a Christian context. It is named after a Redemptorist saint, Gerard Majella, who showed particular care for families during his lifetime and afterwards came to be looked upon by many people as a patron of families in need.
In 1963, the Majellan office moved from Ballarat to the Melbourne suburb of Brighton. There Majellan publishing grew to include not only the Majellan magazine but also bulletins and many books and pamphlets.
Subscription is only $18 for 4 issues per year.
