As a parish grows, it gets harder and harder
to make individual contact with each parishioner
- A personalized welcome note from the pastor
- An invitation and encouragement to explore parish ministries
- A Christmas message with the “inside scoop” on Christmas Mass times
- School or Vacation Bible School registration reminders for new families
- Prayers for their marriage and current/future family on the Feast of the Holy Family
- A Valentine’s Note with links to Marriage and Family Resources on the USCCB website
- A reminder about forgiveness during the many “firsts” of that first year
- An anniversary message and a reminder that you are there for them
- A congratulatory letter from the parish staff with resources for parents and godparents
- A friendly reminder from the pastor that crying babies are a sign of a thriving parish
- Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Godparent’s Day notes from the Pastor
- A baptism anniversary message and tips for how to prayerfully commemorate the day
- An invitation to register for school and religious education when appropriate
Unfortunately, few parishes make the most of today's tools and technology.
The result is parishioners who feel unwelcome or "on the outside" and remain unengaged.
Thriving Parish provides custom communications tools.
Content is not generic or "canned." It's written just for you to reflect your voice, your mission, and what people really need to know to get involved, maintain Christ-centered marriages and families, and grow in their faith.
Better relationships lead to increased engagement and a closer connection to the parish community, Christ, and the Church.
