WE had fun launching our new Facebook live stream of Call Me Catholic; and, were so grateful to have the energetic and informative Sherry Hayes-Pierce to join us on this inaugural effort. Sherry shared some brilliant suggestions for keeping your parish ever accessible to its parishioners by using social media creatively and responsibly.
She suggests that parishes post five themes every day: 1. a message from the Pope or your pastor or associate pastor; 2. the saint of the day; 3. an inspirational quote; 4. behind the scenes images of your parish in action (eg. the altar boys robing in the sacristy or linens being placed on the altar); and 5. a picture from parish life.
