Communications Policy and Submission guidelines

The Parish reserves the right to edit any and all submissions prior to publication or communication.

Preference will be given to liturgical, sacramental, formational, and parish/school items, programs, and events. 

Submissions will be reviewed by the appropriate parish staff member(s) and subject to their approval. 

All submissions should be electronic.  Submissions need to be in an editable format… PDFs will only be accepted if the separate workable file (publisher, word etc.) accompanies it.  If electronic submission is not possible, there will be a delay in publication.

Submissions should include requested publication date(s), and contact information of the requestor.

Bulletin Articles:

All articles must be submitted to the Parish Office by 12pm the Friday before (8 days prior) to the publication date.  It is preferred that they be submitted electronically to the email address: If email is not possible, please drop off your article in the Parish Office; attn: Joni, Bulletin Editor.

Please note that during Holiday Seasons, significantly earlier submission deadlines may apply.  Please contact the Parish Office to verify.

Please include specific dates for publication.

Articles will be placed in the bulletin as space allows and may be edited as needed for space and content.  Articles will be reviewed and approved by the appropriate parish staff member.

Bulletin Inserts:

Bulletin inserts are generally not used.  Insert dates are reserved and scheduled through the Bulletin Editor.  Once an insert publication date is approved, a digital copy needs to be submitted to the Bulletin Editor for approval, and/or editing.  This needs to be received at least 3 weeks prior to publication date.  Flyers are printed on white paper (unless otherwise approved) and will be in black/white.

You may be required to provide volunteers to “stuff” your insert into the bulletin the week of publication.  This is dependent on the availability of office volunteers the week of publication.
