Bulletin Insert Option #1 (also available as a plain text article without graphics, ready to copy into your bulletin)
Joy to the World!
Description: Evangelize at Christmas Mass! This Christmas insert is a two-sided page that will stir the faith of regular parishioners while evangelizing the inactive and rarely-active Catholics who come on Christmas.
The front page is an article about how we can experience the joy and the love of Christ even during troubles. It also invites people to give Jesus to others. This download is a protected Word document that includes an editable box for your priest’s blessing or prayer. Or post your Mass schedule or an invitation to join the parish.
The back page is a meditation about the newborn Jesus that personalizes the true meaning of Christmas. Another editable box invites the unchurched and inactive Catholics to contact someone to find out how to join or return to the Eucharist.
Editable: Customize the pages with your church’s contact information or a brief greeting by the pastor.
Extra copies: Be sure to make extra copies to distribute from tables or racks, inviting parishioners to take them home to friends and neighbors. Our Whole Parish License allows unlimited printing, year after year!
Bulletin Insert Option #2
The Treasure of Humility in the Story of Christmas
Description: Mary and Joseph are examples of humility. Surely, if they had announced to enough people that Mary was about to give birth, someone would have given up their room for one night. But they graciously accepted what was given to them, trusting that God would take care of all things. Through their humility, we learn how much God truly loves us.
