Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How can we order The Saving Word Bulletin?
A. Simply send an email (or fax on your parish letterhead) to St Pauls Publications indicating how many copies of the relevant size your parish requires.

Q. What if my parish needs extra bulletins at busy times of the year such as Easter and Christmas?
A. We make this very easy for any parish. Simply email or fax St Pauls and tell us how many extra copies you need and then you can photocopy these yourself. Why St Pauls needs to know how many copies you make is that we are contractually obliged to pay royalties on all copies printed.

Q. How soon can I order bulletins?
A. Once St Pauls receives your faxed order it will take between one and two weeks to send you your first bulletins. Bulletins are printed and dispatched in 4-weekly cycles and your parish will receive the new bulletins two weeks before the beginning of each 4-week batch.

Q. Can subscriptions to bulletins be altered?
A. Yes they can. Simply email or fax your needs to St Pauls and your subscription will be amended. Please note that because the bulletins are printed in 4-week batches it takes between 6 and 8 weeks to make changes. There are no contract periods involved, To cancel, inform St Puals by email or fax and your parish details will be deleted from the next mail-out of copies. Again it may take 6 to 8 weeks before you stop receiving copies.

Q. How does the parish pay?
A. Four weeks of bulletins are sent out at a time, and an invoice is enclosed. This should be paid within 30 days.
