Do you remember how painful the registration for the last retreat you went on was? What about when you were asked by your pastor to make sure that nobody tried to sneak into last year’s Church play? Well, horrendously unorganized retreat registration, and cheapskate parishioners will soon become a thing of the past. Thanks to the power of web 2.0, you can create, organize, and even sell (or not sell) online tickets to your next church function using Eventbrite.read more 2 Comments
I am sure you want to hurt me after reading such an inane title, but lately I have been thinking about how it would be possible to save money at parishes, while at the time improving the entire parish organization. My solution would be to hire a staff with superior expertise in business administration, design and media, and web development. Oh, and they would also happen to live in another country. Don’t believe me? Well, by using Elance or Guru to outsource, you can make a marketing and administrative team that is comparable to a Fortune 500 company. In most cases – because the labor is so inexpensive – you wouldn’t even need to let go of your current staff.read more 3 Comments

Updated for 2011!
Big thank you to Catholic Faith Education for providing this update on their site: “Very easy to do indeed and in only a few clicks. Note that the Universalis Web site has been redesigned since this blog article was written and the link to the yearly calendar is now situated on the left hand side and not at the top of the page as indicated in the article.”
One of the staples of Catholicism is its liturgical calendar. The Catholic liturgical calendar takes us on a journey through the life of Christ, the saints, and the Church every year – and helps to share in the joys and sorrow that are intrinsic to the human experience. Wouldn’t it be nice to have access to the liturgical calendar in your Google Calendar without having to input each day yourself? Well it’s possible, and very easy!read more 30 Comments
