FYI

From time to time our church bulletin provides links to suggested resources we think you might find useful.  Recently, for example, we provided a link to a weekly newsletter published by The Miscellany, our diocesan newspaper. By signing up, you can receive news, special features, and updates from your diocesan newspaper straight to your email inbox every two weeks!

Nothing, however, comes without strings attached.  While the diocese explicitly states that they will never share or sell your personal information such as your email address, the company that distributes the newsletter makes no such promises.  In fact, in their privacy policy statement they acknowledge that any information they collect about you is provided to their customers to advertise and market their products and services.

Now, there is nothing wrong with a company’s selling your personal information.  After all, they are in the business of making money, and personal data is quite valuable.  However, you must give your consent.

When you sign up for the newsletter, the small print says that by signing up, you consent to receiving marketing emails.  If you’re okay with that, by all means sign up.  However, make sure you understand what you’re agreeing to—not only in this case, but whenever you give someone your personal information online.  Read the privacy statements and disclosures. You may be surprised at what you’re allowing companies to do with your personal information.

Columbarium Engraved Bricks

Help us pave the way to completion of our Memorial Garden and Columbarium.  Donate an engraved brick for the walkway to honor, to memorialize and/or recognize someone, an organization or business.

Don’t wait any longer or you might miss out.  Support our parish enhancement project!  Your support is needed and very much appreciated!
