Do you, your apostolate or ministry have news to share with the greater Saint Agnes parish family? We'd love to help you spread the word!
Please submit your announcement (or event) to be included in one or more of the various communication channels available at Saint Agnes: the parish bulletin, website, calendar, social media, and monthly e-newsletter and welcome emails to new parishioners. Please note: all submissions are subject to staff and/or pastor approval.
Announcement Guidelines and Deadlines
Thank you for your desire to make an announcement about an activity or event to our parish community. While we know every announcement or event is important, we take great care to ensure that our parishioners are informed without being overwhelmed. We want everyones information to really shine and so we have developed the following guidelines to help do just that:
BULLETIN: Reserved for parish-sponsored activities, apostolate or ministry announcements, and diocesan/other parish news. All submissions must be received at least 10 days before the bulletin weekend's Saturday. All submissions are subject to the pastor's approval.
WEBSITE: The news section and homepage rotating images are reserved for parish-sponsored activities and ministry announcements. When space allows, we will also post announcements about diocesan-sponsored events or activities. No announcements for other parishes. Please submit your annoucement at least 5 business days prior to your desired publish date.
FLOCKNOTE TEXTS/EMAILS: These are targeted message to the youth and young adult segments of our parish family. Only parish-sponsored announcements and events or news relevent to these groups are included.
MONTHLY e-NEWSLETTER: These are published the first week of every month. Activities must be submitted at least 2 weeks before the month of publication.
WELCOME TEAM EMAILS: These are also targeted messages to the newest members of our parish family. New parisioners receive a series of strategic emails delivered on a schedule based on when the new parishioner registers. These serve as an orientation of sorts to parish life at Saint Agnes. Emails in the Welcome Series are intended to be timeless or evergreen in nature, but periodically the Welcome Team also sends more dated messages for events that new parishioners would benefit or invitations for new parishioners to volunteer and get involved.
