  • Any additional responsibilities applicant is expected to perform. (ie. Recital Series, extra services beyond Lent such as weddings or funerals, etc.)

All requests must be received no later than the 12th of the month to appear in our newsletter that arrives in our member's homes around the first of the next month.

Your advertisement will run for a three-month period. If you have not found a suitable applicant at that time, we recommend that you review your situation before placing your listing for additional newsletters. We will attempt to verify each month if your position has been filled and if you need your listing to appear in our next newsletter.
