parish publishing channels: web page, bulletin, email, facebook
A stewardship best practice is to link messages about the parish mission to the mission of the larger Church in the Archdiocese. A parish pastor, communication staff, or stewardship director can use homilies, bulletin announcements, events, social media, and website postings to make the invitation to give, “published” for viewing by your parishioners. The invitations can be simple, understandable, and should be messages that make the faithful feel valued for their past stewardship, but that God is always calling them to do more.
