In the Bulletin

  /   Saturday April 02, 2011  

Earlier this week, I decided to join the discussion in the comment box of Matthew Warner’s article on church bulletins.  For me, I must admit that it’s something that people may not think much about.  However, I think he has done a good job stirring up discussions.

For the most part, the bulletin for me has been the means by which I remember what day and time a certain event will be held.  It isn’t much more than that.  I may have learned about the meeting or event somewhere else.  However, I’ve reached a point where I don’t even want to pick up a copy of a paper bulletin.  It’s just something that will get tossed in a pile somewhere.  If I want to read the bulletin, I’m going to download it, even if we have a paper copy at home.  It’s easier for me to look online than to try to find where we put our copy of the bulletin.

I’d love to see some parish have their bulletin online only.  I am willing to bet that there are very few, if any, people who wouldn’t be able to access it today.  Maybe a few copies could be printed for them.  It just seems that it would save a lot of expense and could even be updated if an error were found.
