Q. If I have information to share with the Boeing Employee Catholic’s how do I distribute it?
A. In order to preserve the integrity of the Boeing Employee Catholics distributions, please send all distributions to Jon Seeds at firstname.lastname@example.org. Jon, Eric Wendle and Vince Michalak will vote if the material is in accord with the Boeing Employee Catholic mission statement. It is a quick process so please don't hesitate to share your Catholic info with other Boeing Catholics. Below are some general guidelines.
Newsworthy Events: As a general rule, news / information relevant to our Catholic values will be distributed case by case. For example, if a major charitable organization embraces moral positions contrary to Catholic teaching, Catholics should know about it. Please verify that the information is valid and faithful to Church teaching before requesting distribution.
Parish Activities: As a general rule, parish activities that are 1. Faith Building and 2. Notable will be distributed to members.
- WRYT Catholic Radio. Call them at 314-752-7000, and they will put your event on the air for free.
- Arch diocese tools such as websites (see Young Adult Ministry), newspapers (local and Catholic).
Common Sense will always trump the general rule, so don't hesitate to request a distribution if you feel strongly about it.
