Our Mission

Our Mission is simple: To help you find God in ordinary life and realize sanctity in work, family life, and everyday activities. We want to assist you in your quest to live an integrated life where every moment, even the most ordinary, is offered up like a prayer.  In all the content we publish, we try to enrich your heart and draw you ever nearer to the ever present and totally loving God. Scepter endeavors to carry out its mission primarily by publishing books (print, electronic, and audio) and other media. Among the various subject areas of its publications, the following have special importance:
· Spirituality – Works that foster spiritual growth through a life of prayer and the reception of the sacraments.
· Evangelization & Catechism – Works that help to carry out an apostolate in the midst of the world.
· Doctrine and Theology – Works that deepen understanding of the Catholic Faith and help to defend it.

Either we learn to find our Lord in ordinary, everyday life, or else we never find Him.”

~ St. Josemaría Escrivá

Giving Back

In alignment with Scepter's mission and goal to evangelize and help everyone find God in ordinary life, we offer book donations to those incarcerated. Every letter we receive from incarcerated individuals is responded to, and all requests for books are granted at no cost to the individuals. "I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness." (Isaiah 42:6-7)

Our Founders

Fr. Joseph Musquiz (1912-1983), was one of the first three men ordained as priests for Opus Dei (along with Blessed Alvaro del Portillo and José María Hernández Garnica). He worked to establish the Opus Dei around the world and was sent by St. Josemaria Escriva to the United States In 1944. The cause for his canonization was opened by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, where he died.
Fr. Dick Rieman (1925-2019) was born in Chicago and served as a Navy flyer in World War II. After the war he studied at DePaul University, where he met Fr. Joseph Muzquiz and Salvador Ferigle, who had just arrived in Chicago from Spain to begin Opus Dei’s apostolic work in the United States. Dick Rieman (as he was known) joined Opus Dei in 1950 and thus became the first member from the United States. During this time he was instrumental in the founding of Scepter Publishers(1952). He went on help start the Heights Study Center, which later became The Heights School in Potomac, Maryland, and spent the last 40 years as chaplain of the Montrose School for Girls in Medfield, Massachusetts.
