The Bridge Policies

The Bridge is the official communication of the Office of Sponsored Ministries to inform, educate, and inspire the community linked to CSJ Sponsored Ministries. The Bridge is published three times a year.  A hard copy is distributed to all current Board members, CSJ Associates, Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston, local ministries, and Brighton employees.  An electronic copy of each issue and an index of all articles are available on the Sponsored Ministries website.

The Office of Sponsored Ministries has an expectation that all Sponsored Ministries will contribute an article to each issue.  We welcome all article submissions and pictures from the Sponsored Ministries.  All submitted articles must have the approval of the local ministry administrator.  All articles are subject to editing by the Sponsored Ministries staff.

Suggested length is 400-500 words.  Microsoft Word format is required.  Pictures should be submitted as an attachment, not embedded within the document.  Be sure to clearly indicate article title, author’s name and position at the ministry.

Two to four photos should accompany each article.  Please include pictures that reflect the diversity of your ministry.

Digital photos are strongly preferred.  Please submit digital photos as jpegs with a resolution of at least 150 dpi. Please do not submit photos from your iPhone as the resolution is not strong enough to enlarge and reproduce a quality printed photo.

Non-digital photos will be scanned and returned (please include a mailing address).  Please do not write on the back of photos.

Please label the photos with the ministry name (BHCC, BHP, FA, JS, RC, SJPHS, WPMS) and identify all people in the picture separately.  Appropriate photo release forms should be on file at the local ministry.
