What do they call him in the church’s bulletin?

In writing his formal title, i.e., the outer envelope or in a bulletin it should be Reverend. In addresing him as in”dear so and so” in a letter or on the inner envelope it would be Father.

I had to learn this, my uncle is a Catholic priest. 🙂

Yup. Reverend is the formal title for Catholic priests 🙂

Eh ours said Reverend too, but we just went by Father Pawel since that is what we always call him. I don’t think it really matters, he’ll get the envelope either way 🙂

I think what I did is “The Reverend Father So and So” and then on the inside just put “Father So and So.”

Reverend you can use for any religious minister/priest/pastor. Because it just means “holy.” It’s a good fail safe.

As a callligrapher, let me agree with the comments! It’s Rev. Joe Smith on the outside encelope and Father Smith on the inside.
