GRAIL was incorporated on May 9, 1985 as a non-profit independent entity as The University of St. Jerome's College Press. The journal was administered by an Editorial Board comprised of St. Jerome's faculty and staff assisted by a group of national and international editorial consultants.
This arrangement was in effect until June 17, 1994 at which time Novalis/St. Paul University took over the ownership of Grail. Novalis/St. Paul assumed full legal, financial, administrative, and publishing responsibilities. Their ownership and management of the journal lasted until the final issue of Grail was published in December, 1998.
