OCP (formerly known as Oregon Catholic Press, and originally the Catholic Truth Society of Oregon) is an American liturgical publisher based in Portland, Oregon. The not-for-profit company publishes liturgical music, books, choral collections, hymnals, missals, and support materials for the Catholic Church in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Korean and Chinese. "Spirit and Song", a division of OCP, publishes contemporary worship music for the Life Teen youth market.[1] OCP also publishes the Catholic Sentinel, the diocesan newspaper for the Archdiocese of Portland. OCP products are used in two-thirds of all Catholic churches in the U.S.[2]

OCP represents such musical composers as Michael Joncas, Dan Schutte, and members of the St. Louis Jesuits. Through its "Spirit and Song" label, OCP represents Christian singer-songwriter Matt Maher and other emerging artists.

OCP is an owner of International Christian Resources, LLC, which manages LicenSing Online, providing multiple license options and a digital Music Store of congregational editions, accompaniments, choral music and MP3's, representing more than 200 member publishers.[3]
