The mission of the Communications Board is to build an information-rich environment to connect and inform all members of the parish, and sometimes members of the surrounding community. Venues for communication include the parish Annual Report, the parish bulletin and eBulletin, the parish website, posters, brochures, bulletin boards, flyers, e-mail, and the parish directory.
Regular activities of the Communications Board include:
Producing the weekly eBulletin (published each Friday morning)
Providing content to the Sunday Bulletin editor
Helping publicize parish events through vestibule posters
Enhancing and maintaining the parish website
The Communications Board meets the third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Pastoral Center, 3290 Middlefield Rd., Palo Alto. Anyone with an interest in furthering communication among the parish and surrounding community is encouraged to join us.

The eBulletin is an initiative of our parish Communications Board. It is a regular Friday morning electronic bulletin for the parish, with a very short publication deadline, so that weekend reminders, last minutes information and informative articles with no size limitation can be shared with parishioners. The content in the eBulletin often includes that which is seen in the Sunday paper bulletin, but the Sunday bulletin has a typical submission deadline of 10 days, while the eBulletin can include articles received as late as 4:00 a.m. on Friday mornings.
As of May 2011, our parish eBulletin is sent to 311 parish families! Pass the word! Who will be Family No. 312? If you are interested in receiving the eBulletin on a weekly basis, send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be added to "PaloAltoCatholic-EBulletin@googlegroups.com" which is used to send out the eBulletin each Friday morning.
