GUIDELINES FOR PROMOTING PARISH MINISTRIES/ORGANIZATIONS/EVENTS
If you are planning to use the parish communication network, it is important to contact parish staff well in advance. They will be happy to assist you and accommodate your needs in light of the parish calendar, promotional space available, and other considerations that may arise. You are encouraged to make an appointment with Jean McKenna, Communications Coordinator, Ext. 4217, to develop a communications plan and a timeline for the successful promotion of your group and your events.
As you make plans to promote your event or group, please consider the following:
Members of a specific ministry or related ministries
A specific age group
The school community
The entire parish community
Other Catholic parishes
The local community and beyond
Do you have deadlines for reservations or the purchase of tickets?
Are you planning to staff an information table on the patio?
Would you like the information posted in advance on the parish website?
The OLA parish bulletin or bulletins at other parishes
The Archdiocesan newspaper or email “blasts”
Local newspapers, including ads, calendar listings, or feature stories
Photo displays on the patio, posters, brochures on the Welcome Cart
The parish website and social media, including photos, video, and links
These promotional options may be arranged through Jean McKenna, (909) 626-3596, Ext. 4217
For reservation of a table on the patio, contact Sandra Leonor, (909) 626-3596, Ext. 4231.
It is recommended that you submit your reservations for a table on the patio along with your facilities requests for the coming year. At other times, the deadline for reserving a table on the patio is no later than Monday prior to the date requested. Verbal or e-mail confirmation by the office manager is required to ensure space authorization. It is strongly recommended that requests for space be made as early as possible. All groups on the patio will be included in announcements at Mass. (Please refer to the separate Guidelines for Parish and Outside Groups.)
