Dear Friends & Potential Advertisers:
It’s that time of year again! The full-color bulletin for Saint Miriam Parish and Friary is our largest communications tool. We publish a 6-8-page bulletin each week and print enough copies for all four Masses and any weekly special events that occur within our parish, school, cemetery, and special events. The bulletin, The Saint Miriam Weekly Focus, includes our weekly Mass and Events Schedule, Wedding and Engagement Announcements, Mass intentions, the Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers and Altar Servers Schedule as well as a personal blog post from me, as pastor. It also includes a special section geared toward our wonderful school and our historic cemetery as well! All events for Parish, School, Cemetery, and Community activities for the week is updated with regularly scheduled parish and school meetings, as well as social events taking place in our community. It is an exciting publication!
The uniqueness of our publications is that they occur in both eFormat (electronic and published online and via our Saint Miriam App) as well as a beautiful print edition that, unlike most parishes, only changes its advertisers once per year! That means that your generosity produces an advertisement for your business that will appear from Easter to Easter without interruption, as well as online and via our compliment of social media FREE listings that are hyperlinked to your own website!
There are several ways parishioners and visitors obtain our weekly bulletin: – Bulletins are available after all the weekday and weekend Masses! – Bulletins can be sent to their home via US Postal Service, by request! – Bulletins are made available directly on our two websites and Parish App! – Bulletins are forwarded to “snowbirds” who live 6 months out-of-town!
