For those new to the list: 1. This list operates on an “as-needed” basis. That means you won’t be getting any “hi, how are you and what’s up?” kind of emails. But if you have a need, we’re here. 2. When sending to the list, include your name, paper and diocese and then whatever you want to say. Or, if you have a signature line, fine, I can pull it from that. 3. Your message will then be sent to all on the list. When there’s a “hot” discussion, I usually wait until there are a few responses and then send out in the morning and then in the afternoon so you aren’t inundated. We’ve gone weeks without activity and have done as many as – if memory serves – four a day (each with a number of responses in it.) Don’t plan on being swamped unless there’s a lot of activity. 4. Mailings are sent Bcc (a way that gets around some of the usual filters for spam and bulk mail.) 5. When you want to ask a question, open a discussion topic or answer, please just send “reply” not “reply to all"

Photography at a funeral Mass

Posted By Kevin Wondrash, Tuesday, November 30, 2010
I've got a question for all the photojournalists out there about taking photos at a funeral Mass.

I just attended the funeral Mass for our retired auxiliary bishop, Bishop Wirz, and took photos for the paper. I've never taken photos at a funeral before, and felt slightly awkward, as if I were intruding. For other photojournalists who've done it before, how do you toe the line between being intrusive and getting the photos necessary for the story?

PC vs Mac

Posted By Marie Mischel, Thursday, February 11, 2010
Does anyone produce their paper with InDesign using PCs instead of Macs? I'd like to know, because we're the only office in the diocese that's strictly Macs and it causes all kinds of communication problems. Before proposing that we switch to PCs, however, I'd like to talk to someone who actually produces a paper using them.

Getting in the "spirit" for Catholic Press Month

Posted By Robert E. Zyskowski Sr, Friday, January 22, 2010
Management Team at The Catholic Spirit is planning to cook and serve lunch to the rest of the staff as a Catholic Press Month gesture of appreciation for all the great work they do all year long on not just The Catholic Spirit but New Earth (Fargo), The Northern Cross (Duluth) and The Visitor (St. Cloud). We're also debuting a promotion effort to remind people "8 ways both in print and online The Catholic Spirit touches your life." While reminding people of the benefits we deliver, we also want to remind them that no one else covers the church the way we do, thus the promotion's tag line, "Heaven knows there's nothing like it." -- Bob Z.
