Communications Office Update

HNP Communications Around the Province

NEW YORK — Holy Name’s Communications Office welcomes news about parish and ministry events and people. Director Jocelyn Thomas encourages friars and staff members of Province parishes and ministries to e-mail information.

“Only three issues of the newsletter remain left this year,” Thomas said. “Many programs and special events are going on around the Province – from Florida  to New England – that will interest readers.” She urges friars, communicators, and parish staff to submit a written summary of events taking place in their ministries, and assures them that the Communications Office will follow up if details are needed.

Upcoming deadlines for the remainder of 2008 and the beginning of the new year are below. As a general rule, submissions are requested one week before publication.

  • Nov. 12 for the Nov. 19 issue
  • Nov. 25 for the Dec. 3  issue
  • Dec. 10  for the Dec. 17 issue
  • Dec. 30 for the Jan. 7, 2009 issue
  • Jan. 14 for the Jan 21, 2009  issue

Thomas also encourages HNP Today readers to visit the Communications Page on the Province Web site. In addition to the updated format, several new features have recently been added. The page now includes Friars in the News, a publications style book, news releases, and downloadable fact sheets. More content is being added in the coming months.
