Do what you
were called to do

Parish communications are critical…but they’re not why you became a priest! We give busy pastors and their teams the tools they need to attract, inspire, and encourage participation in the sacraments and parish life, so they can focus on the more important work of saving souls.
Today's Priest
is Stretched Thin

In 1970, a parish priest served an average of 1,430 parishioners; today he serves 3Xs as many.
THERE’S A LACK
OF ENGAGEMENT…

The statistics are troubling. Only 45% of Catholics say they attend Mass at least once a month.
...AND A
WAVERING FAITH.

In this age of constant connection to technology, when so many people seem to worship their smartphones, the old methods of outreach don’t seem to be working.
More and more Catholics are constantly “connected” to their devices but feel “disconnected” from their parishes. The need for timely, automated, authentically Catholic communications has never been greater.
In the last 50 years, the number of diocesan priests has dropped by almost a third. Meanwhile, the number of U.S. Catholics has grown by 43 percent. That means far fewer priests are serving far more parishioners today.
