I'm not sure exactly what you want, so please forgive me if this suggestion
You can put your banner in a reference frame (defined as "a frame on a
reference page") and then link this to a paragraph style using the "Frame
Above Pgf" option on the "Advanced" tab of the Paragraph Designer. For
more information on this, look up "reference frames; above and below
paragraphs" in the index.
To have a box with a rule around it, your text will need to appear within
an anchored frame or a single-cell table. I would recommend the table option.
I've created an example of what I'm talking about; it's avaiable via http.
