Introducing Micro-clips

This year we have added a new feature to the resources available on the J. S. Paluch Subscriber Resource Center: Micro-clips. These are postage-stamp-size photographic images that can be used as headers or accent pieces for any of a number of different kinds of bulletin announcements. 

One distinguishing feature is that almost none of them have any text on them, which makes them even more versatile. You’ll find one or two of them listed toward the bottom of the first page on any given Sunday. The filename given to each image also indicates its content. There are names like USFlag3 or ChaliceHost.

Some of the Micro-clips are seasonal, but most are not. So a better way to see all the Micro-clips that are available is to launch a keyword search. On the main Bulletin Resources page of the SRC, click on All Resources, or if you are already on a resource page, click on the All tab. Then in the box under Type Keywords, type in “Micro clip” (without the quotes), hit Enter, and all the Micro-clips will appear in your browser. Scroll through them to see what’s available and start adding these versatile accents to your bulletin today!

PS: We are in the planning stages for next year’s resources, so if there is an image that you’d like to see included in the next round of Micro-clips, be sure to let us know.

I Remember When: Posting Your Bulletin Online

I frequently hear myself telling my fifteen year old daughter that "I remember when. . . . " For example, I remember when candy really did cost a penny. And I remember when we waited all week for our favorite television show instead of binge-watching an entire season in one afternoon. 

Well, I also remember when bulletins were only printed and handed out at Mass on Sunday. Today's technology allows us to put the bulletin right into the parishioners hands via their smartphones, laptops, and tablets with just a click of a button. 

Parishioners and visitors can access the current issue as well as past bulletins with ease. JS Paluch makes it easy to download your complete bulletin via our website,, and then post it to your parish website for all to find and read. 

1. Use the drop-down menu from Download and select Download Bulletin
2. Key in your six-digit bulletin number
3. The most current issue of the bulletin will be displayed. (Or click Previous Bulletins to see older issues of the bulletin.)  

4. Open the bulletin that you want to download and on the upper right corner, click the download button to save the file onto your computer. You can now share this complete file, ads included, on your parish website or via email. 

And now I remember when JS Paluch made it simple and quick to stay connected!
