Communications Requests

Submit a Request

Communications will only be approved as time and space allows, and will be filtered by priority and their relevance to the majority of the Diocese. Depending on available resources, not all requests can be granted.

All communication requests, along with supporting content, must be submitted a minimum of 48 hours ahead of requested Publishing Date.
(for Crosstalk, please review submission deadlines)

Missing items will cause delays in getting your content published.

Advertising Campaigns

The Diocesan advertising program helps parishes during the busiest seasons of the church year to reach the readers oflocal newspapers. We design, order, and place “tag” ads announcing season service times at participating parishes. The cost of this program is shared, and work for the parishes are kept to a minimum.
