We are pleased to work with parishes, schools, Catholic organizations and ministries within the Diocese of Harrisburg to share their news and promote their events through our website, www.hbgdiocese.org/the-catholic-witness-newspaper, and our weekly e-newsletter. Please refer to these guidelines for your submissions, to help ensure they meet deadlines and policies for publication.
The deadline for submitted announcements is Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. Parish Obituaries and event announcements for the Notebook listing will be updated and posted to The Witness’ website weekly. All other submissions – including reader-submitted news of past events, photos and commentaries – will be considered for future use at the discretion of the staff.
Events for the Notebook Section: Submit typed announcements via e-mail to email@example.com. No ads, flyers or PDFs, please. The Catholic Witness promotes only those events that are hosted or sponsored by a Diocesan parish, school, office or ministry.
Parish Obituaries: Parishes are encouraged to submit names of their deceased parishioners and an optional short biography of the deceased (no more than 50 words), if the parish would like, via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Photos, Articles and Commentaries: These are accepted and published on occasion, but are not guaranteed for publication. Published pieces are subject to editing. Photos must be quality images with a minimum 300 dpi resolution and include a caption or description.
Event Coverage: For planning purposes, please share your request in advance with Jennifer Reed, managing editor, at email@example.com or (717) 657-4804, ext. 209.
