The normal bulletin deadline is 3:00pm on Wednesdays, 11 days before the Sunday of publication (i.e. if the bulletin date is 24 April, deadline is April 13). Sending notices even earlier is better. With the number of new requests, upcoming bulletins are often full before the Wednesday deadline since bulletin layouts are often created ahead. If you also want a pulpit announcement, click here. That is due the Wednesday before the weekend you want. Please note that pulpit announcements are at the discretion of the pastor.
We ask that you limit flyers to horizontal vs. vertical 1/3, 1/2, or 1/4-page instead of a full page which limits the amount of other parish news we can insert and is harder to resize.
The content and layout of the notices in the bulletin is at the discretion of the parish and notices may be shortened due to space. Artwork and flyers may be attached to the form below.
You can also have multiple announcements that may be submitted as a single Word document with the dates for each announcement clearly stated. Social media posts will also be created when possible.
Due to the upcoming holidays in November and December, below are the early deadlines for bulletin submissions. If you can submit even earlier, it would be helpful since the bulletin oftens fills up quickly. Please email Tina Doak at [email protected] if you have any questions or need assistance or call her at 703-532-8815 x222.
