8.5x11 sheet explaining what a mission is all about. Intended as a full page in your bulletin or as an insert.
This is the very first mention of your mission to just let people know what it is all about.
Next week's bulletin would be the announcement of date and time.
What is a Mission?
8.5x11 sheet boldly announcing the mission, dates, time. Wording is kept to a minimum.
There is a space under the title "PARISH MISSION" for you to add the date and time via a "text box".

This week's ad keeps the visual (flames) but changes the wording a bit to keep it fresh. The date is reinforced. This is also the week that flyers and posters should be going up. The visual (flames) will provide the continuity.
This is now 3 weeks before the mission. People already know about it via bulletin, flyers/posters and homilies/announcements. So this week's and next week's bulletin ads have minimal words and is simply to keep the mission in the front of people's attention.
Simple, but kind of fun and different.

Unlike SERIES I, all 6 flyers in this series are intended to be printed and displayed. Each shows a different demographic in the parish--thus showing that ALL are welcome to mission!
Many diocesan newspapers are happy to print a short article about the upcoming mission.
