QR Code

This time last year QR codes made a huge explosion on the media scene. They were always there sitting quietly in the background, but now they are front and center. Many restaurants are using them for their online menus, while news networks place them on the television screen so viewers can be directed to their app or website. Your parish should be doing the same. You can create a QR code for anything – your website, your bulletin, your church’s Parish Giving site, and so much more. All you need is 5 minutes to demonstrate how one works, and your parishioners can then view anything electronically.

Technology Education

Change is good. It really is. We all fear change, but we really shouldn’t. This includes learning and having to adapt to a different source of information. That’s why we think offering informational sessions prior or after Mass to help show how technology can help them with their parish community. Let them see the apps and social media sites the parish uses to keep in touch with parishioners and to encourage everyone to use them.

Hello, Technology!

Is Your Parish Discussing Technology Education?

Technology is more popular than ever. We basically do everything on our tablets and phones. We stream our Netflix, dance to TikTok videos, follow our favorite YouTubers, and shop from our favorite stores too. As you can see, technology is only going to become more and more necessary for everyday life. That is why it is essential that parishes embrace technology and utilize it in their parish.

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?

Comfort Zone

First, we just want to thank all the parishes that have been with us through the years. To think, Parish Giving has been successful for eleven years now. We started as a way for parishioners to pay their weekly offering online and has become much more than that. This blog is for those of you who have been with us for much of the way. We thought we’d share what we offer now as opposed to the very beginning!

The Importance of Social Media Part 2

As you probably remember, last week we started the conversation as to why your parish should use social media. You can attract Millenials and iGens to your church, convert with RCIA, use it for events and to broadcast your weekly mass. That is just a small fraction of what you are able to do with Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Here are some successful events we have found using various social media sites!

Why Give Online?

Why give online? This seems to be a question we are asked quite often here at Parish Giving. The concept of giving your weekly church offering online seems to be a concept not many parishioners and parish administrators are completely onboard with. But why? Let’s examine all of what you do online, and how much easier it has made your life. Perhaps you will then view Parish Giving differently.
