Advent is a busy time at the parish. And you know that the phones will be ringing (“What time is midnight Mass?”)
Using myParish App Messages is a great way to keep your parishioners updated. Many parishes have Penance Services during Advent. Use Messages to send out reminders to your faith community a week or so before, and then the day before. Do the same with the Holy Day on December 8, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception when you’re likely to have a different Mass schedule. Of course, parishes have a variety of Masses for Christmas and January 1.
You’ll also want to make sure your parish’s myParish App calendar is kept up-to-date. You might even want to put a prominent reminder in the bulletin that says something like, “Make sure to check myParish App for calendar and event updates during Advent and Christmas.”
Happy Holy Days!
