FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Grand Rapids, Mich.—June 8th, 2015
Catholic parishes across the country now have an even more robust tool to use in reaching out and connecting with people everywhere—the Spanish-language version of myParish app, which launched this week. myParish, a premium app designed specifically for Catholic churches, is a first-of-its-kind app for iOS and Android devices that connects people and parishes in ways that build stronger faith communities. Now Spanish-speaking parishioners will be able to access the app in their own language, making it even more effective and dynamic. The app will automatically appear in the language set on the parishioner’s phone, whether English or Spanish. The Spanish version offers the full suite of features found in the original English-language version of the app. App administrators at the parish level will be able to send out messages simultaneously to both English and Spanish versions of the app, giving parishes a simple, streamlined way to reach a broad audience at once.
On the verge of celebrating its first anniversary of revolutionizing the way churches communicate, myParish enables parishes to better engage the New Evangelization by putting parish news, information and contacts—as well as faith-building resources and features, such as daily Mass readings, Confession and prayer time reminders, the ability to submit prayer requests and much more—right in the palm of parishioners’ hands. myParish can now be found in almost 300 parishes across the country and that number is quickly growing.
With myParish app, Diocesan Publications has set out to establish a means of connecting parishes and parishioners, at the forefront of technology. The app gives the people of God, the Church, a modern-day tool for communicating a timeless message—the Good News. myParish serves as a bridge for parishes and people, fostering Catholic Life Every Day. Visit myparishapp.com to learn more about getting the app for your church or diocese—in English or in Spanish!
