When I had to clean out and sell my parent’s house, I needed help and recommendations for painters, landscapers, cleaning crew, plumber, realtor, electrician, etc. A neighbor dropped off a church bulletin and said he could vouch for all of the businesses in the back. I called and hired all the businesses from there. All were terrific. I use my local bulletin now as a reference. Has not let me down!

We usually get about 5-10 calls from it (church bulletin ad) every single year. It's definitely working!
Tony, Skyline Painting & Power Washing, Manahawkin NJ
I started my business and put an ad in the bulletin. I got many referrals from it and that was good. But when I got contracts with the new developments as a result of the bulletin referrals, my business really took off. I am grateful for the bulletin ad I renew each year.
John Langan, Director of Marketing, Archbishop Ryan High School
I can't say enough about John Patrick Publishing, especially working our church bulletin rep Tracey Rauh. She repeatedly exceeds my expectations, is always responsive and helpful, and is the key person in the success we've had building partnerships with local parishes. Thanks to Tracey's great out-of-the-box ideas, our programs and events have been very visible to our target audiences.
Larry – Insurance
Great way to advertise in the community. My wife and I are both agents and have expanded our client base this way!
Dr. Jonathan Nicozisis, Princeton & West Windsor Orthodontics
Happy to support local community houses of worship, schools and small businesses. Thank you for the opportunity!

The Church bulletins are the only advertising that actually work for me. That is why I run both of my businesses there.
Anthony, owner, Electrician, RI
The first week my ad was in the bulletin, I picked up a couple of new clients from my church who didn’t know what I did.
Comfort Keepers – Central Jersey & South Jersey
Advertising since 2002 speaks volumes about how beneficial we find advertising in John Patrick bulletins to be. Church bulletins are our number one source of new clients. The investment we made in ads yields significant returns for us.
Caitlin Mial – Landscaper, Palm Beach County, FL
Thank you so much for how easy you made the process of getting an ad into the bulletin. I want to share how beneficial the experience was. Most of my husband's clients heard about us because of the bulletin ad. Because it was being advertised in the church community, it seemed to be taken more genuinely and not just as a business out to make money. The (customers) were wonderfully friendly and the word of mouth helped so much. I recommend it to anyone looking for open arms, and to help build their business.
Lisa Romero, owner – Swamp Door, Antiques & Curiosities, Gilbertsville, PA
Partnering with local parishes via John Patrick Publishing fulfills two needs: It gives me an important opportunity to support church communications while simultaneously sharing information on the services we provide. Best of all, it's unobtrusive, tasteful and welcome advertising that demonstrates our ongoing commitment to our Catholic and local communities.

The church bulletin ads have helped me grow my business and meet wonderful people at the same time!
Joe & Alex, Owners Tank & Libby’s Restaurant, Drexel Hill, PA
Advertising in this bulletin has been very wonderful for introducing our business here in Drexel Hill.
Robert Baxter – Baxter Plumbing & Heating, Springfield, PA
We have been in both (Holy Cross, St. Kevin) bulletins for over 4 years and it's been working really well.
Bob Fanelli Owner/Operator – Chick-fil-A, Whitman Square, Philadelphia, PA
We have been very happy with the service from Jerry and his team at John Patrick Publishing. They are a joy to work with. The program is easy and we were able to gain new customers to my restaurant. The church bulletins have helped us stay connected with the community and the community has responded by stopping in our restaurant thanking us for the support. I would highly recommend this approach to advertising to anyone.
Andrea McLaughlin Owner, Scoop House Ice Cream Shop
I have tried many ways to advertise my business since opening three years ago. Church bulletins surprised me as far more effective at reaching customers than any other advertising. People who are not Catholic pick up the bulletins and see my ad. It is a great way for people to remember that I am here, especially in the winter.
Dr. Renny – Eye Doctor
Church bulletin advertising has worked for us. Parishioners spread the word and remain loyal.
David Stanley, DCS Construction & Paving, LLC
I’ve been advertising with John Patrick for several years and I am very happy with the business I receive. I acquire many new customers for my paving company and I also receive a lot of referrals from my existing customers.
Rene – Secane Pizza, Primos, PA
I've been keeping track of the advertising with the coupon we placed in the bulletin. Great response!
Deb, owner, 36 Allds Salon, Nashua NH
I like it (advertising in church bulletin) because of the clients it draws and they refer other clients in the local area.
Rick Huber – Huber Handyman Services LLC, Collegeville PA
I have been very pleased with the results of my ad in St Eleanor's bulletin. I receive about four potential client contacts per week that reference the ad. Most of these contacts turn into clients. I will be renewing my ad.
Dan – Painting and Contracting
The ad paid for itself. It helps with everyday brand recognition along with my yard signs. Just added my second church.
Mike Martin, owner, Martin Restoration, LLC
I’ve been advertising in Sacred Heart church bulletin for 10 years. The amount of leads that pan out are far more than any other advertising. Potential customers are more prone to give you the job because they have a level of trust in church bulletins. All other advertising through different companies are more expensive and a waste of money, in my opinion. I highly recommend advertising in any church bulletin.
Matt, Repair Wizards – Haddon Heights, NJ
Very effective in reaching my local community, definitely got foot traffic through my door! Soon to expand my support into neighboring churches, it really worked for me.
Jean R. – St. Francis Senior Living
Our ad budget is limited so we need to use it wisely to target prospective residents. Ads placed in bulletins where our customers come from has proven highly effective. The ability to change/move means we can use our ad dollars efficiently.
Karen – Allstar Window Cleaning, Kennett Square & Glenn Mills, PA
In the last 30 days, I have spoken with two people who referenced the bulletin; so we are pretty happy!
Jim – Morgan Basement Waterproofing
Church bulletin advertising is a great way to get your name out into targeted local areas. You are seen as a trusted business by the parishioners. I advertise in churches throughout the Tri-state area.
I love advertising our business in the church bulletins because we are able to connect with our community. It has helped grow our business and word of mouth within the parishes. We like it so much that we added 7 more churches!
Rick, Alpha Omega Janitorial & Power Washing Inc.
I am more than happy that I accepted the invitation to become part of the Church Bulletin Program. My ad looks professional to see not only in print, but online. Within two weeks of my ad running, I just completed my first referral from it; paying for over half my ad cost already!
Annette Young, Trinity Marketing Company
Wm Henerson has been advertising in the church bulletins for decades and we couldn't be happier with our results. We have a call tracking phone number on the ad that lets us know the ads are working and producing revenue for us. Our representative, Bob Arnold, has been a wonderful resource for us in helping us choose the parishes to advertise in. He created the ad and worked with the placement of the ad for us. We consider the bulletins a wonderful part of our overall marketing efforts.
Marguerite Esmonde, Villa Maria Academy High School
As a Catholic girls’ high school, Villa Maria Academy High School advertises with John Patrick in order to reach our key customers. We are able to be in front of Catholic families on a weekly basis, while supporting local parishes. John Patrick Company has been easy to work with and updating our ads is easy. Bulletins will continue to be a key part of our advertising plan.
David B. Insurance Agent
I actually got 3 new customers in my first 5 months. Excited for my home church to join your network in the near future.
Bill H. – Law Practice
We have over 20 years with the church bulletin program and John Patrick Publishing. Why, you might ask? The simple answer is it works and we continue to have great success year and year. As parishioners sit at mass, they are reflective, thinking about what is important in life. It hits them where they live and our firm is there to offer them peace of mind protecting their assets and family's future.
