New Partnership provides churches with a complete package to engage their parishioners’ time, talent, and treasure.
Liturgical Publications Inc and WeGather join forces to provide a complete package of online communication tools for churches around the country.
NEW BERLIN, WI, AUGUST 26, 2010--Families are busy today; and one way they combat their lack of free time is to use modern technology to connect, more easily, to their business and social communities. Liturgical Publications Inc (LPi) and WeGather have joined forces to help churches around the country create ways for busy members to use technology to connect to their faith community as well.
LPi has been helping churches—especially Catholic parishes—provide printed communications to their members, through weekly bulletins and newsletters, for 38 years. In recent years, they’ve invested heavily in new technologies, to take that expertise online. Partnering with WeGather is a natural fit to further expand their online presence and expertise.
“With the introduction of our newest product line our customers can take advantage of our four decades of experience in church communications while using the Internet to deliver their message to their members in a safe, convenient, and easy manner,” says Joe Luedtke, Vice President of Interactive Media at LPi.
LPi includes an online directory of printed communications and the advertisers that support it (www.SeekAndFind.com); customized, easy-to-maintain Web sites specially developed for churches; and now— through the partnership with WeGather—online groups for parish members. An e-giving management tool is currently in development.
“Most churches’ use of the Internet is still limited to e-mail and a Web site with outdated content,” says Joe Jablonski, president of WeGather. “With WeGather we can eliminate many of the communication hurdles, and provide not only current information—but facilitate secure conversations online. WeGather helps the church engage the time, talent, and treasure that the parishioners all have within them.”
“While LPi has a complete host of online tool for churches, we recognize that each parish community is unique and have built the package to allow for complete customization to match each church’s needs,” emphasizes Luedtke.
Your church can go online with LPi by contacting our corporate office at 800-950-9952 ext. 2519 or www.4LPi.com/WeGather.
