In June 2013, the Pastoral Council along with the Communications & Evangelization and Membership Committees held a Communications Workshop for chairs/directors of ministries/organizations at the Cathedral Community. The purpose was to help us communicate with each other better, and learn to plan ahead!
A Communications Handbook was passed out for reference. Some of the contents are available here on-line:
Tips for Photographing Church Events
How to Plan an Event (General)
Event Checklist (General)
Contacting the Media
Web & Social Media Basics
Procedures for Updating the Website
Logo Use & Standards
The Cathedral Community Logo
Most importantly, the Facilities Request Form/Guidelines should be used by committees/organizations in planning an event at the Cathedral.
The bulletin deadline is Monday preceding the weekend information should appear. If there is a change, it will be noted in the previous bulletin. Inserts/flyers must also be submitted at that time.
The deadline for Church announcements is Thursday noon.
Forms of social media used here at the Cathedral: website, Facebook page, (Cathedral Community Faith Formation also has one) and a Twitter account.
An e-mail blast called "What's Happening at the Cathedral" is sent out Friday's to all parishioners that have an e-mail address on file with us.
