St. Patrick’s 2014 Calendar Sponsor

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

We are currently looking for a sponsor for our 2014 Calendars. The calendars are distributed to the parishioners around Christmas time. This is a great opportunity to support the church and at the same time advertise your business. The sponsor would be responsible for reimbursing the church for the total cost of the calendars. The church receives the bill in November around the time that the calendars are delivered.
The sponsor and the church have a black and white ad at the bottom of the calendar. The dimension of your ad space is 5” wide x 2.25” tall. If using a logo or picture it would need to be supplied to the church in a pdf or jpeg file. You can view the 2014 calendar line at
