HUNTINGTON, Ind. -- Two companies dedicated to serving the Catholic Church are coming together to offer solutions for parishes.
Our Sunday Visitor, Inc. has acquired the assets of Zartarian Publishing, Inc. in a move to provide products and services to a greater number of parishes in the Archdiocese of Boston and throughout the northeastern United States.
Our Sunday Visitor offers a full array of materials and services for Catholic parishes and dioceses. The company is the nation's leading provider of offering envelopes, serving well over half of the Catholic parishes in the United States.
Zartarian Publishing has been one of the largest providers of offertory envelopes to parishes in the northeast, particularly in the Archdiocese of Boston.
Our Sunday Visitor Offertory Solutions will provide all of the services previously offered by Zartarian Publishing.
"The Zartarian business was built with a reputation for service and quality and we believe that Our Sunday Visitor's product and service offering can provide solutions that these parishes will value. We are actively changing our marketing approach to coordinate electronic giving, web site solutions, an increased offertory program, and print and mail communication services with our industry leading offering envelope service," said Kyle Hamilton, president of Our Sunday Visitor Offertory Solutions.
The company founder, Richard Zartarian, passed away almost four years ago.
"Since that time, Lynda Zartarian and I have worked to maintain the high standards that our parish customers have come to expect," said Chris Keiley, former vice president of Zartarian Publishing. "After considering our options, we concluded that the best way to provide a consistent level of service and commitment to our parish customers long-term was to join another organization dedicated to helping parishes. Our Sunday Visitor, celebrating 100 years of service to Catholic Church, was the clear choice to continue the Zartarian legacy."
