Below is a list of ways you might consider contributing to an upcoming bulletin.

We'd love to hear from you!

 

 

SUBMIT A WEEKLY REFLECTION 

 

Page 4 of our bulletin includes a weekly reflection. It might be from Fr. Nick or one of our Deacons, a seminarian, staff member, ministry leader, or perhaps even a parishioner. Anyone who is a part of our parish community is always welcome to submit a reflection for consideration. The reflection should be pertinent to that particular Sunday's gospel/reading (Mass readings can be found here), or it might be relevant to the liturgical season we are in. Please reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can work to fit you into our schedule. 

Reflections must be no more than 350 words in length and include a photo that somehow relates to the article or author.

 

 

 

SUBMIT AN ADORATION CHAPEL REFLECTION

 

We would love to hear from you regarding your experience in our Adoration Chapel. How might you be blessed through your time with Jesus? Please share your reflection, or perhaps you are inspired to write a poem or prayer, etc. Reflections should be roughly 350 words. Please complete this form and either send it electronically to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or place it in the collection box in the Adoration Chapel entrance. Blank forms may also be found in our Adoration Chapel.

 

 

 

CONTRIBUTE TO OUR ARCHIVE CORNER 

 

Do you have photos or stories from St. Paul of the Cross' past that you'd like to share with the larger community? Please contact Mark Miller to see if there is a way to include them in an upcoming Archive Corner. This section of our weekly bulletin has been greatly valued by many since its inaugural run in our March 14, 2021 bulletin issue. You can reach Mark (pictured below) at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or just keep your eyes peeled for him the next time you are at church as he can oft be seen buzzing around our campus!

 

 

 

SUBMIT YOUR ARTWORK OR PHOTOS FOR A COVER

 

 

 

ARTWORK should be roughly 7-7/8” long by 5-1/4” wide with a slight border that could be cropped if necessary (i.e., do not let your artwork go to the edges because we may have to crop it to make it fit the cover space). Artwork should be inspired by a particular gospel/reading for the week it is submitted. Please provide inspiration verse with artwork. 

 

Special thanks to Loretta Fuller for her beautiful painting of Madonna and child

 

 

 

   

 

PHOTOS should reflect our SPC campus/community

 

Special thanks to David M. Charewicz of David Chare Photography for his beautiful photo of our Upper Church sanctuary

 

 

 

 

 

It is important that you reserve your Sunday before designing your piece as we can only publish one piece per Sunday.

If you have any questions or are interested in submitting your original artwork, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
