For the last few months we have been experimenting with a new form of email and text communication called Flocknote. This is a program designed for Churches, helping pastors stay in touch with members of the parish. We would appreciate hearing your feedback about these emails and texts. We find them useful in helping to share information about parish life. They provide us with an opportunity to reinforce information shared in the bulletin or in church in a (hopefully) creative and engaging way. But what do you think? Are they helpful, effective, useful? Are there ways we could improve? Most recently we have been sending out a daily Advent reflection. I hope they have been helpful in your Advent journey. 

We could use your help in cleaning up our data base. At the moment we have 531 names or telephone numbers or email addresses in the Flocknote database. However, the program indicates that less than 300 of those have been receiving our messages. This means that for about 230 people we do not 1) have a cell phone number, or 2) an email address, or 3) our information is inaccurate. We understand that some of you may not have an email address or cell phone or we have a landline phone number in this data base. For the system to work you need either a cellphone or email address, hopefully both. We have the option of sending an email message - which enables us to be a little creative - or a simple and brief text message. 

If you have been receiving the messages, you do not need to do anything. If you have not been receiving them, and would like to, we would love to hear from you so that we can make sure we stay in touch with you. First you can make sure we have your cell phone number and/or email address. You can also enter your information in the program directly. You can text good2Bhere to 84576 or visit It is always possible to stop receiving message or to unsubscribe. 

Thanks for helping us out!
