Help Your Parish Become A Parish Of Prayer

Do you want your parish to come together more frequently in prayer?

myParish App can help you accomplish this important mission.

 

Teresa of Avila once said, “We pay God a compliment by asking great things of him.”

Don’t be afraid to be bold with your prayer as a parish. God Bless!

Example Message:

Hey everyone! This is Father Bill and I would really like to help encourage our parish to pray more together. Simply go into myParish App and set a reminder for the act of hope prayer. We will be praying this prayer every day at noon. Click this link for more information.

Your Best App Promoter? Your Pastor!

Having the priest’s “blessing” of the use of myParish App is a terrific boost for a parish. Some priests are really impressed right from the start, and others may need a little more time. Either way, having the pastor endorse the use of the app means people will really take notice.

Here are a couple of tips for Father:

  • After Mass has concluded, have Father ask everyone to take out their cell phones. Yep, that right: Father said take out your cell phones! If folks don’t have the app, tell them to text “APP” to 88202. And you’ve just gained a bunch of app users. It would be a good idea to include information about the app in that week’s bulletin.
  • Don’t forget that Launch Kit! There is a t-shirt in there for Father. It would be great if Father could wear that t-shirt for refreshments after Mass, parish social events, etc. It’s a fun and effective way to let folks know that the app is important to parish communication.

The pastor doesn’t need to be the admin for the app (although some are!), but his visible and vocal support of the app carries influence. Let your parishioners know that Father says, “Use myParish App!”
