Since many fundraising events were cancelled or postponed in 2020, why not hold these events virtually this year? Let us embrace our virtual life a bit longer and see how a Virtual Day of Giving can benefit you and your parish!

I’ve come up with a plan to follow that allows us to do something besides wait for new shows on Netflix and Prime.

What to Give Up for Lent

Lent is the time of year in the church in which we reflect and prepare for Easter. We are asked to give up something that means a lot to us for 40 days as a way to represent Jesus’s sacrifice during his journey through the desert for that amount of time.

Here are some items you could be giving up during Lent rather than just meat on Friday’s.

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!
