Mailings from Bishop Rhoades are sent in English and in Spanish. The Spanish version is sent only to those who are marked “Spanish” under language field in ParishSoft (Spanish/English and English/Spanish will get the English version).  A parishioner should be marked “Spanish” only if they have requested written communication in Spanish, so this should be a question you ask when you set them up. There are many who speak Spanish, but prefer written communication in English, so do not assume that because a person is fluent in Spanish, they want their written communication in Spanish.
