Parish Communication Resources

Parishes have a big job in communicating with their communities, especially in these challenging times. The goal of this page is to make that work a little easier.

The diocese’s Communication Office, in collaboration with other pastoral offices, developed the content of this page to help your parish.

We continue to offer resources for parishes to help them to promote our synod, which moves into a survey phase in the fall.

This page will be updated regularly.

We welcome your questions, comments and suggestions.

Synod Survey

The diocese created a QR Code so people who have not registered with your parish through Flocknote can take the survey. The code links directly to it, and from there individuals can opt to take it in English or Spanish. We encourage parishes to share the code through their own communication means. We  are providing the QR Code in two formats, as a PDF for use in the bulletin or other print media, and as a PNG for posting on social media and website.

You can click on the image to download it.

Proposed bulletin inserts

The faithful’s understanding of the synod and participation are important. This section offers texts to be shared in your parish bulletin. You may trim as needed.

**New** English: Aug. 15, 2022 Synod Survey Available on Sept. 6
