Saint Snippets

What do you know about the saints? Chances are you can learn something about more than one hundred saints if you put weekly “Saint Snippets” in your Sunday bulletin. These charming little features provide a one-line biography and quote from a Saint or Blessed whose feast day falls during the week of the current bulletin. You’ll also see an eye-catching (and lovingly whimsical) portrait of each saint to go with the bio and quote. There are familiar saints and obscure ones, new ones and old ones, and plenty of opportunities to find out a little something new about each one.

What’s more, these brightly-colored items are intended to be cut out of the bulletin (hence the name “Snippets”) and collected together or posted on your refrigerator as a reminder to pray to the saints every day. Loving grandparents and aunts and uncles can cut them out and send them to grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

You can find a Saint Snippet (or Recortes de los Santos) in English or Spanish on every Sunday in the J.S. Paluch Subscriber Resource Center (SRC). Just scroll down until you see them on your screen (they’re hard to miss). They are also available in black and white for those bulletin pages that require it. And if you want to see the Snippets all at once, just go to the Mary/Saints tab on the ribbon at the top of the page and click on Saint Snippets.

Put a Saint Snippet in your bulletin today, and start snipping!
