During our “town hall” meeting a couple of weeks ago, one of the desires expressed was for there to be better communication to the people of the parish as to what is happening. This has certainly been a concern for myself and the staff over the last six-seven weeks. There have been some steps that we have taken. First and foremost is the Sunday bulletin. Claudia and I have been working to transform it into a weekly newsletter of the parish. In addition to letting you know about upcoming events, there are resources to help you grow in faith, and news from the parish. Summer is the slowest time of year for a parish, even a Cape parish. Recognizing this, we are working on expanding the size of our bulletin and what it contains.
The bulletin is online as well. If you click the bulletin link on our website, it will take you to the bulletin company’s webpage for our parish. Not only will you find the current bulletin, but a small archive of the past few weeks. Also, this letter is published on our blog (sjeparish.blogspot.com) each Monday. We also post things on our Facebook page and twitter account. Flocknote is a new tool as well. If you go to flocknote.com/sje you can sign up to receive updates to your email, Facebook, Twitter or phone. You can also sign up by texting “sjeparish” to 84576. If you are in high school or college, you can sign up for our special lists by texting “sjecollege” or “sjeyouth” to 84576.
Just an FYI that our new phone app is out. It can be found as a mobile app or on Google Play (SJE Pocasset). I am waiting for Apple Developer to go back online so it can be submitted to Itunes. In the meantime though, Iphone users can download it as a mobile app. The Link is on our Facebook Page and Twitter feed.
