Helping you be more productive in your parish office
Service Bulletin Builder is a software tool that allows you to easily generate service bulletins using a Word document template.
The program is designed for use by one or more staff members in a parish who have responsibility for creating the service bulletin each week.
You select what information will appear in the bulletin from several different categories, then build the bulletin automatically.

An email function allows participants to be notified about their role in the service.Learn More

The Service Planner allows the user to select the date, time and type of service. The program makes provision for 2 morning services and 1 afternoon service of various types.

A Word document template is required in order to build the bulletin. An existing bulletin can be used as the starting point for the template and modified so it contains placeholders for all the information that changes on a weekly basis. The program opens the Word template in the background, creates the bulletin and saves it with a unique file name.Learn More
