Engage Your Parishioners and Evangelize Your Community

Our time-saving tools let your staff create, organize, and schedule social media posts in a single, easy-to-use platform.

Why should parishes use social media?

In the first century, St. Paul traveled to Athens – the cultural center of the Roman Empire. It was a noisy place, full of distractions – with pagan idols and every kind of temptation. But it was where the people gathered, so that’s where St. Paul went. And he preached boldly. 

Ancient Athens is the perfect metaphor for today’s social media environment.

We are called to do the same thing that Saint Paul did 2,000 years ago. We are called to go where the people are, stand up, and boldly speak the name of Jesus Christ.

Your parishioners and neighbors are online, and they’re counting on you to be there with them. Nearly 8 in 10 Catholics are active on social media, and the Baby Boomer generation now spends more time online than they do watching television!

Social media is an incredible opportunity to reach your neighbors outside of Sunday Mass. Parishes who use it effectively report increased offertory giving, more engaged parishioners, increased volunteerism, and a greater sense of community. What’s not to like?

Your parishioners want and need to be inspired and reminded of the beauty of their Catholic faith – and they want to belong to a parish that is alive and vibrant.

Our mission is to help you with that.

Parish Essentials: Social Media Made Easy

Most parish leaders know they need to be on social media. But they either don’t know how, or they struggle to keep up with it when so many other needs are demanding their attention.

Who even owns our parish’s Facebook page? And who has the password?

Almost every parish we work with has a story about how their parish’s social media accounts was originally started by a well-intentioned volunteer, who then handed the page to someone else, who shared it with a friend… on and on and on.

If you haven’t yet, now is the time to grab a hold of your social media accounts and bring everything together under one roof. Our Catholic social media experts will help you identify who “owns” your page and help you get everything set up the right way so that you can control who has access and who can post on your behalf.

How Most Parishes Experience Social Media

How Most Parishes Experience Social Media

Most parish leaders know they need to be on social media. But they either don’t know how, or they struggle to keep up with it when so many other needs are demanding their attention.

How many pages do we need, and how many accounts?

You want to have all your social media posts organized neatly in one place, but you’ve never found a good process to do it. Plus, you may need to post the same content to multiple accounts because:

  • You’re part of a cluster or family of parishes
  • You have a separate social media account for your school
  • You have one pastor overseeing multiple parishes

Logging in and out of accounts has never been more painful. It sucks the time (and life) out of your day.

Who Posted That Content?

You’re not the only person wondering who created that last post on your parish’s account. And you’re certainly not the only parish with random accounts and passwords floating around out there. Plus, you have volunteers that want to help, but they need supervision and limited permissions.

Trying to manage logins, users, and permissions across all the different social platforms is nearly impossible. And reposting from other organizations and showing off their logos isn’t what your parishioners want.

Did Our Posts Do Anything?

Have you ever gotten to the end of the month and asked if your social media was doing anything for you?  It’s frustrating if you’re putting time and effort into something, but you can’t tell if it’s working.  You need an easy way to measure what you’re doing – even across multiple accounts and social media networks.

Social Media Best Practices for Parishes

Our team has worked with and trained more than 4,000 parishes across North America on how to engage their families through social media. In that time, we’ve developed proven strategies you can begin implementing today.


The 8:1 Nourishment Rule

Your parish needs to connect with your parishioners 8 times with uplifting, relevant and inspiring content for every one time you ask your parishioner to volunteer, attend or donate.

Neighbor Reach

Neighborhood Reach

When your parishioners share your original (not reshared) content, their friends within driving distance of your parish will be the first to see your posts.

Generational Reach

Generational Reach

While your parish followers may trend older, when they share your content, it is seen by the younger people in their lives – children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Large following

Offertory Follows Engagement

Parishes with large social media followings report steady increases in offertory, year after year.

Daily Posting

Daily Posting and Household Giving

Parishes that post at least daily on social media report household giving that’s 44% higher than parishes that post less often.


More Graphics, Fewer Links

Photos, videos, and questions all receive higher-than-average engagement and reach, while links, status updates, and events perform less well.
