Shane O’Flaherty has launched his own company called, Growing the Faith. They created an app for Catholics and have been all over the country working with priests to bring this free app to Catholics. Their mission is to help people grow in their faith. The app has great Catholic content, Catholic radio, daily mass readings, saint of the day, personal daily motivation, parish directory, daily tweets from the pope and so much more.
Two weeks ago they attended the Chicago Diocese Convocation. During the laity panel workshop, they talked about the benefits of using new technology to reach parishioners. Fr. Barron echoed the same during his point #7 of the New Evangelization presentation. OneParish is a gift and a vehicle for Pastor to reach out and talk (message) to parishioners who don’t always read the bulletin each week.
Peggy O’Flaherty says that she has attached the marketing overview that describes the many features of OneParish and below is a short YouTube video link about our vision on how to grow parish engagement from our CEO, Ryan Kreager.
Anyone can download the app today by going to www.oneparish.com
or if you have an Android phone it is on GooglePlay (OneParish). We like to make it simple by putting the app. in the hands of all parishioners, after a Sunday mass by handing out the download card. Once the parish is ready, we can connect the parish to those parishioners in an interactive way.
