The past 15 months has been a rollercoaster. Between shutdowns, mandates, different rules in different states, and so much more, we are more than ever ready to be getting back to it. It seems appropriate to start during summer since many need some rest and relaxation, and it also helps us to slowly reacquaint ourselves with in-person Mass. Here are some suggestions of how to start getting back to it.
As time goes by, churches ask Parish Giving the same thing: what should we include on our website? Well, we thought after a while, why not make a blog about it? Since our goal is to attract traffic to your website, we thought that these are the best items and links to have on your church’s website.
As you know, 2020 was a year unlike any other in our lifetime. One of the major things we learned was how to communicate while in our home offices. We enjoyed our conference calls and seeing everyone’s faces, but at the same time, we feel as though we could have done better. In 2021 our goal is better communication and that starts with you! We are asking for suggestions from our loyal users about how we can communicate better. As you have read in our latest blast, communication is key in any relationship, and your relationship is important to us!
Here are some of the ideas we have come up with so far:
It is hard to believe that Catholic Schools Week is upon us once again. This year it is from January 31st to February 6th. Parish Giving would like to share with you as to how we help and support Catholic Schools in ways you may not think! We offer much more than online giving you know!
It is difficult to believe that this is the last full week of September. It was a month in which numerous decisions needed to be made for school, religious education, and other activities. Parish Giving was here to help each parish with their individual needs. We wanted to share our recap to show how we are able to help even when it is difficult to see that light at the end of the tunnel.
Now is the time for Online Giving.
For close to twenty years, parishes have found online giving to be a useful tool to supplement their Offertory Collection. Forward thinking parishes employed this tool to safeguard against the disruption to the weekly collection due to illness, vacations, and inclement weather. Today we see the value of using online giving because of Covid-19.
Can you believe it’s been a year and a half since we started this blog, and we have yet to write about how it all began? The question why was Parish Giving created is much more than a one word answer – it’s a story that should be shared with our followers and users. This is how it all started.
As we mentioned in last week’s blog, it’s never too early to plan for fall. Our teachers are gearing up for a new school year, and so should our parishes. We want to make sure that you are utilizing Parish Giving to benefit you the most! Keep reading to find out how!
As you probably remember, we have a 10 Really Cool Reasons to use Parish Giving blog already. We thought why not update it to make it more relevant for our readers! Over the past year we’ve grown (but just the right amount!) and expanded in our marketplace! Take a look and see what’s new!
Finally, February is here! The shortest month in days, but the longest in winter; February brings the harshest snowstorms and frigid temps leaving us with cabin fever. The most difficult part is coping with the freezing temps and keeping everyone entertained. Here are some ways you can rid yourself of the winter blues.
It all starts with Thanksgiving Eve. People are traveling, visiting family and ready to feast on turkey. Then we celebrate with a large meal on Thanksgiving, and prepare to shop until we drop on Black Friday. Over the past decade or so, Small Business Saturday has helped the mom and pop shop businesses thrive during the holiday season. Next is Cyber Monday where we search for the best deals on line. And last, but not least is Giving Tuesday. It’s a fairly new concept that is paving ways for a different kind of gift giving.
