Catholic New York: How parishioners can get a copy of Catholic New York at Mass
Since the start of Covid-19 Catholic New York has reduced the number of bundle copies we send to parishes in the Archdiocese. That has made it difficult for some people to regularly pick up the paper in their parish church. There are two easy solutions for them!
- Have them send Catholic New York your name and email address.
- If you see people looking for copies, let Catholic New York know. They can increase the number of copies delivered to your parish at any time.
Institutional Commodities Services (ICS): Fall Equipment
We recently received a note from an Equipment Sourcing Solutions customer in Manhattan. It warmed my heart. This is what it said: “I don’t usually give out testimonials but my recent experience with ICS regarding the purchase of two new copiers and the disposition of the two old copiers supplied by outside vendors was exceptional. ICS was able to close out the old copier deals and replace them with two new copiers at one-third of the price in a seamless, professional manner. Thank you for making this such a smooth and pleasant transaction.”
