A Combined January/February Issue

December 19, 2017

The sharp-eyed among us have noticed this already, but just in case … we're issuing a bold prediction: Some will look in vain for their February Gleaner in the mail and miss a simple fact. What you hold in your hand is the January/February issue. The next issue — our annual Images of Creation issue — will come to your mailbox in March. There will be one more combined issue this year, for July/August.

We do this, risking worried phone calls and letters from peeved parishioners, because it will enable us to save valuable postage and printing dollars that can be put toward increased digital options for a growing number of Gleaner readers. Effective communication supported by good stewardship is something we all strive for, and we hope this may be a step along those lines.
