Bulletin Guidelines


For anyone who uses the bulletin as a means of communication for the greater parish...THIS INFORMATION IS FOR YOU.

Our deadline requirement for submission of the Bulletin has been moved from Noon to 8am, so the deadline for getting the information into us for submission into the next bulletin has changed as well. The Deadline for submissions from administrators is now no later than 10am each preceding Tuesday. This provides a very short window for formatting and preparing all articles/information to be placed into the Bulletin document (the format required for publishing). If you are able to submit this information earlier that will be helpful.

The submission times are different for all other articles / information/Councils / Commissions / Committees / ministries / clubs / advertisements, etc.. That date / time is the preceding Sunday at noon. This allows additional time for reformatting and making the article / information print ready for inclusion in the document that is sent to the Printery. Please take a moment to pass this information onto all that this applies to.

All submissions should list the Bulletin date for which they apply, and be sent to:
     All others:

If you have any questions, please call Kathy McSperitt at the rectory. Thank you for your attention to this.

Wishing you many blessings

We are asking all those who are involved with the bulletin in one way or another to respect the following guidelines. Due to the length of the weekly bulletin and in an attempt to respect our folks who work on the bulletin each week as well of those who submit articles, we have put the following guidelines together. We ask you to please take a moment and read it carefully, perhaps even post it on your refrigerator! At this time, I would like to reiterate the information we receive about your ministry is "most important" to all of us here on staff. Please help us get this pertinent information out to our community by respecting these guidelines.

We appreciate each and every one of you and "thank you" in advance for your partnership.

  • For all inquiries regarding the bulletin, please connect with Kathy McSperitt.
  • For your convenience you can email your information using the appropriate email address above, fax your article: 474-8378, drop your information off in the mail slot at the rectory, or stop by for a visit.
  • Any information received after the deadline will not make it into that week's bulletin. It will be put in the folder for the following week. We regret any inconvenience involving time dated materials.
  • All inserts as well as articles need to be received by the above mentioned deadline. We regret that there can be no exceptions to this. If your insert can be put in the main body of the bulletin, that is where we would prefer it to be. Inserts will be negotiable.
  • If needed, your article may be edited. All pertinent information regarding your event will be put in the bulletin. If your article is lengthy, we will do a "lead in" advertising your event and giving specific information in the main body of the bulletin. Then with the added information you have given us, we will type it out on an extra sheet that will have other lead in articles on it, this information can then be found as a run off on the back table in the Church or on the Church bulletin board. We will post in the bulletin where more information can be found regarding your article. This way, we will have fewer inserts and yet we will have much more information going out to those who are interested.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please give Kathy McSperitt a call at 473-4960. She will be happy to hear from you.

Take care and God bless
