Collecting Parish Bulletins?

Does anyone here collect church bulletins? I started saving the bulletins from every different Catholic church I visited years ago, as a small memento. Am I the only one? Does this qualify me for an episode of Hoarders? :grin:


I also have done this at different times - especially when I was becoming Catholic and after I became Catholic. I tried to visit as many churches as I could in the vig city I lived in at the time.

Is your house full of stuff from decades of refusing to throw anything away?

Does my son’s large collection of books that he left behind when he moved out count as stuff?

No, I say, answering myself, you can never have too many books.

I do because I might need the phone numbers on it.
I actually found a Lutheran church bulletin that also had hymns as well as the information to contact the church from All Saints Day. I kept it, not because I have any interest in becoming a Lutheran (believe me, I don’t) but because I want to look up the hymns.


No, you’re not the only one! :wink:

I would especially do this if the parishes were in the area so that I could keep them for Mass and Confession times. :slightly_smiling_face:
