HOW DO I GET SOMETHING PUBLISHED IN THE BULLETIN? WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?
Information for the bulletin must be received 10 days prior to the Sunday it is published. These dates are published on the front of the bulletin each week. Information can be submitted to the Parish Office in one of the following ways:
FAX: Fax your request to 816-761-8812 during office hours (9:00 AM-4:00 PM).

E-MAIL: Send information to firstname.lastname@example.org
MAIL: Attn: Bulletin Editor, Coronation of Our Lady Parish, 13000 Bennington, Grandview, MO 64030
The FINAL DEADLINE may change or require an earlier deadline due to holidays or Office schedules, watch the bulletin for announcements. For any issue, please do not hesitate to submit your request several days or weeks in advance, since bulletin space is limited and notices may be printed on a first-come, first-served basis. Notices may be edited and/or limited to two announcements prior to the event. Please note: we do not accept “Help Wanted” notices from parishioners or businesses for our bulletin.
CAN I HAVE FLYERS INSERTED INTO THE BULLETIN?
Flyers are used only for major events sponsored by the parish. Coordinators of these events should contact the Parish Office to make arrangements to advertise an event with a flyer.
HOW DO I GET SOMETHING ANNOUNCED AT MASS?
Announcements of certain events can be made from the pulpit at weekend Masses. Generally, parish events happening immediately after Mass, in the upcoming week, or on the following weekend, and to which most or all parishioners are invited, may be announced. (However, please be aware that all pulpit announcements are made at the discretion of the pastor.)
Requests for pulpit announcements should be submitted to the Parish Office. The FINAL deadline for requesting a pulpit announcement is Thursday noon preceding the desired weekend.
HOW DO I RESERVE A ROOM IN THE PARISH FACILITIES?
Our Parish Office Manager schedules all room reservations. Based on availability, the following facilities may be reserved for parish organization meetings and events: Parish Hall, Gym, and Classrooms.
The Parish Hall and Gym can be rented for private parties such as, wedding receptions, anniversary parties, etc. by registered parishioners only. There is a rental fee and insurance liability fee, as well as a damage deposit. Contact the Parish Office for more information.
WHO CAN BE MARRIED AT CORONATION OF OUR LADY PARISH?
The person seeking to be married at Coronation Parish needs to be a registered parishioner at least 6 months prior to contacting the pastor regarding a wedding. The Pastor must be contacted 9 months prior to the anticipated date. Children of registered parishioners, away at school, may also celebrate their wedding at Coronation.
ARE THERE ANY REASONS WHY THE CELEBRATION OF A WEDDING MAY BE DELAYED?
The reasons why a wedding may be delayed include:
The non-practice of the faith
Refusal to cooperate and participate in the marriage preparation program
Public propriety (An example here would be living together. This “public” statement is in direct contradiction to the “public” statement made in the sacramental wedding. In many states, “living together” is recognized as a “Common Law Marriage.” A “Common Law Marriage” can be blest in the Church in a simple ceremony if the couple promises to live and practice their faith.)
