This month is the first time since mid-March that many parishioners are able to attend mass. There are many new rules and regulations to follow, but we try to see the positive in the situation – intimate mass is better than no mass. With all of the new changes, we wanted to remind you of one thing that has not changed – using Parish Giving. Whether you are a longtime user, or one of our new additions, we are still here for you. Here are some reasons why Parish Giving should still be part of your new normal:
This is an interesting time we live in. Our worlds have been turned upside down. Since mid-March we have transitioned our homes into classrooms, offices, restaurants and so much more. One change that many parishes were not expecting was how to transition from worshiping at church to worshiping at home and keeping parishioners engaged. One thing is for certain – Parish Giving was ready to assist with each parish needs and are welcoming new churches too. If you are not thrilled with how your e-giving company is working with your parish, consider this as the perfect time to change. What do you have to lose?
We are all in denial about it, but when we changed our calendar from September to October this past week, we could no long put it off. It’s time to create our checklist for the holidays. People are decorating their homes with Halloween decorations and soon they’ll be stringing their Christmas lights. That means you need to make sure you have your priorities set and Parish Giving on speed dial!
As you can remember, we left off our last blog discussing our online forms. They were our ticket item to create more of a buzz when it came to communicating with our parishes. No longer were we just a weekly offering site; we are now something more meaningful.

Believe it or not, television commercials are dedicated to back to school! Teachers are gearing up for their classrooms with seasonal decorations, motivational pictures and plenty of ideas on how to make this school year better than the last. Are you doing the same thing with your Fall plans? Remember, it all starts now!
Staycation is a word in our vocabulary like hangry or mansplain; we use it in everyday conversations. When asked what we are doing during our summer vacation, we may replay with, “I’m doing a staycation this year, how about you?”. Parish Giving thought we would celebrate those who are participating in the staycation this summer and give you some ideas! Keep reading for more details! Continue reading “Staycation: Part 1”
