LPi has launched, WeGather, a cloud-based parish community builder integrated with a robust church member management system designed to empower Catholic leaders in ministry. Designed to help parishes better communicate with their parishioners and visitors to their communities, while efficiently maintaining their parish member census data, WeGather helps parish staff and lay leaders to engage people where they are at in their relationship with the parish community, so they can better connect, grow, and disciple them beyond weekend Mass. The technology of WeGather offers parishes a way to better serve the emerging needs of the Catholic Church in the modern world.
We seem to be swamped with online communication. If your church wants to communicate effectively with your parishioners, email marketing could be a good fit for you.
No doubt, the healing of victims and the healing of our Church will likewise be a long, messy process. When it is all over, we may very well be a smaller, poorer, and weaker Church — just the kind of Church Jesus can use to evangelize the culture.
