A reader writes in: “Is there a website or publisher that provides brief bios of saints that can be included as part of a weekly church bulletin?”
Many parishes like to include bios of saints in their weekly bulletins and worship aids. This allows parishioners to reflect on the saints whose feast days fall that week. Sometimes images of the saint are included as well. The challenge is finding texts and images that are not copyrighted.
Bios are a useful way to introduce the faithful to particular saints. Their lives can help us reflect on and strengthen our own faith. What makes their stories so compelling is that they resonate with our own life experiences and challenge us to rethink our relationship to God, the world, and one another.
Does your community include information in the worship aid or bulletin on the saints whose feast days are celebrated that week? If so, is there a resource you have found particularly helpful?
