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

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.

Old Outreach Methods Aren't 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
Good communication helps us to grow closer, to know one another better,
and ultimately, to grow in unity. Media can help us greatly in this, especially nowadays,
when the networks of human communication have made unprecedented advances.
The internet, in particular, offers immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity.
- Pope Francis
