All Souls Catholic Church Sunday Bulletins

All Souls Catholic Church parishioner Paul Brefka typed the Sunday Church Bulletins for more than a decade. Prior to his death in 1977, he gave the collection to the Bogeajis family (also long time parishioners of All Souls Catholic Church) for safekeeping. There they remained unseen and their mere existence unknown to many for 12 years.

The “From the Pastor” section in the October 15, 1989, All Souls Sunday Bulletin, states: “The parish has received through Mrs. Phyllis Bogeajis an invaluable collection of All Souls parish bulletins published from 1953 to 1968.”

Above image shows the pre-printed cover of the May 16, 1954 Bulletin.

The bulletins with their amazing historical information and sweet memories of days gone by were sent to the Diocesan Archive in Orlando for safekeeping as the paper was becoming fragile. In 2014 – 25 years after the Bogeajis family presented the Sunday Bulletins to Father Burns – the Archivist at the Diocese of Orlando confirmed that the bulletins were indeed safe and sound.

The bulletins provide a glimpse into the 1950s-1960s life in the Sanford parish and include details of worship, fasting requirements, the fund raising and construction of the school, Catholic Womans Club, Holy Name Society and their “Stag Parties”, Scouts, May Day Crownings,Solemn Novenas to Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, the establishment of the Knights of Columbus, St. Patrick’s Day Card Parties, Bake Sales, 9th Grade Graduations, Winter Festivals, the Naval Air Station Chapel, and much more.

There are 16 years worth of; bulletins published ten months out of the year – ceasing publication during the summer months. They began as a single sheet with pre-printed color front and back which featured teachings on the Catholic faith and rituals. The inside of the bulletin sometimes includes a photo of the church and text in a color to coordinate with the tone on the cover.

Father Richard Lyons explains the printing/publication process in the September 6, 1959 announcement sheet:

“Announcement Sheet: Today the announcement sheet returns after six Sundays of rest… We receive the sheets unfolded and printed on one side in color from the Catechetical Guild Press in St. Paul, Minn. For .80₵a hundred. We get 800 each Sunday at a cost of $6.40 a Sunday. We have to buy the machine and the ink for the printing of the inside. A member of the Parish, God Bless him, prints and folds the 800 each week for nothing. Thought you would like to know…”

Eventually, the front and back were also printed by the parish and featured advertisements from local businesses on the back cover, likely to cover the cost of printing.

Presented here are links to the 154 months of bulletins, one sheet on Lent, and two “Welcome Wagon” flyers which appear to have been included in the “Welcome Wagon” basket delivered to new residents.
