Are you a Catechist? This newsletter is for you!
August 23, 2006
For the next month the Aquinas and More homepage will be featuring a bunch of homeschooling stuff including links to different Catholic Homeschool Curricula, Catholic homeschooling blogs and some tips on choosing a curriculum. If you haven’t checked out our homeschooling resources, this is a great time to do that.
Every year we seem to miss some major sales possibilities because the dates sneak up on us. I’m sure we aren’t the only store with this problem. Here are a few major ones to remember:
Back to school (August) – start planning in May. You need to contact schools during the summer if you want to sell them religious ed materials. Homeschoolers start buying books in June so be ready.
Advent (November) – Make sure you have your advent wreaths and candles lined up by the end of September. Also, if you carry Oplatki, you can usually start taking orders in September.
Christmas (December) – Start selling Christmas cards in your store in early October. We are already starting to see sales for them on our website and it’s only August.
Lent (March) – Make sure you have a palm supplier and the candles for the Easter Vigil ready to go before Lent starts.
In general, if you plan to promote a specific event, give yourself at least three weeks of lead time so that you can get the product in stock before the event.
For reasons I’m not going to get into here, the only weekly Solemn Mass in our diocese was terminated last month.
I am interested in where other places are that actually have them. If you could, list the parish, diocese, website and a brief description about what they do (all Latin, some Latin, chant, bells, incense, etc.)
I know of four parishes in the country where such a Mass exists and would like to compile a more complete list.
Holy Ghost – Denver
Weekly 10:30 am
Has chant with organ, incense, bells, male-only servers, polyphony and traditional hymns and on major feasts a full orchestra.
St. Agnes – Minneapolis
Dream parish for those wanting to see what Vatican II intended – polyphony, chant, Mass at original high altar, almost entirely in Latin
Arlington – I know it exists, don’t know where it is.
Dallas – Fr. Paul was removed from his parish and took the Mass with him to his new assignment.
Please let other bloggers know about this post as I would really like as much help as possible in compiling this list.
