Wood carving of St Gerard Majella as patron of families, by the Melbourne artist Leopoldine Mimovich. The carving is in the chapel of Majellan House, Brighton, Victoria.

Majellan Publications began in 1949 with the first issue of the Majellan magazine. This was published by the Redemptorist Congregation, a Catholic religious order, from their community in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. From the beginning, the magazine has sought to foster Christian family life. 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 heavenly patron of families in need.

In 1963, the Majellan office moved from Ballarat to a large house in the Melbourne suburb of Brighton. There the Majellan publishing apostolate grew to include not only the Majellan magazine but also Sunday Parish Bulletins and Children’s Bulletins and a large number of religious books and pamphlets. The staff of Majellan Publications also grew to include lay people as well as Redemptorist priests and brothers.

Today the Majellan team includes David Ahern, Carol Bengough, Marg Berwick,Trish Pullyblank and Tony Biviano.
