Prepare Your Parish for Easter 2021
Archdiocese of Chicago Parishes
We’re dedicated in providing our full-service design and printing solutions for parishes across the Archdiocese of Chicago. We want to help your parish be prepared for Easter 2021, with some effective solutions utilized by many of our parishes.
As many parishioners are staying safe at home and attending virtual live-streamed masses from your parish, reach out to them and let them know you’re with them during the upcoming Easter season. Mail an Easter letter, along with a custom card or Easter offering envelope. In the past years, this mailing solution had become really effective for both Christmas and Easter, helping boost holiday donations.
We know that the Paschal Triduum can be confusing. We have a great solution to help! Encourage your parishioners to actively participate with our custom Order of Worship booklets. In your booklets, include your liturgy music and text, comments, as well as mass schedule, online giving or a “Message from the Pastor.” You may add local business advertisements at the end to help cover part of the printing expense.
Holy Week Schedule Outdoor Banners
Inform your parishioners about your Holy Week Schedule. Having a large banner placed outside your church will get almost everyone’s attention! In addition, our team has prepared a few templates to make this process easy for your parish. Add an eye-catching photo on the side of the banner, as well as your parish logo.
Holy Week Schedule Foamcore Signs
As your parishioners enter the church, inform them about any announcements, restrictions, or mass schedules. Our foamcore signs have been a pretty popular product for many local parishes. It’s a great, cost-effective solution to get your message out to those entering your church.
As your parishioners are walking in, inform them about where your entrance/exits are, where to form a line, or display a custom announcement. Buy it once and just swap out a coroplast sign in a few seconds. It’s easily replaceable! These A-Frame Signs will not only be helpful right now, during this pandemic, but in the near future to promote and display important parish events.
Make sure your parish is well prepared for Easter, ensuring your parishioners maintain a safe distance during communion or when entering/exiting. Our floor graphics are printed on ultra-tough polyester that is anti-slip certified. We have two different types of floor vinyls: 1) for most smooth and carpet surfaces, 2) for outdoor and/or rough surfaces.
QR Code Stickers
Our QR Code Stickers have gotten pretty popular throughout the past few months in many large parishes. Square stickers, with a custom generated QR code, are placed in front of each seat / pew. They are a great idea for parishes trying to encourage online donations. In addition, these QR Code stickers work great to point to an electronic version of the latest Order of Service.
Our Pew Stickers help in safely seating each person in their pews. With COVID-19 restrictions, marking pew seats had become necessary per the archdiocese reopening requirements. To help meet those requirements, we have created thousands of vibrant red Pew Stickers, having them in-stock. We also have a customized option with your parish logo, color, and custom text.
Easter Parish Mailing
Send Your Parishioners a Letter for Easter
As many parishioners are still staying safe at home and attending virtual live-streamed masses from your parish, reach out to them and let them know you’re with them during the upcoming Easter season. Share your Triduum schedule, add an Easter Message from the Pastor, and encourage online or by mail giving. With our mailing services, we can include a remittance envelope that is already addressed to your parish. Simply download your parishioner’s name and address from your church database and we will print your custom letter/envelope, insert, seal and mail with USPS. In the past years, this mailing solution had become really effective for both Christmas and Easter, helping boost holiday donations.
Parish Branding Solutions
Have you completed “Renew My Church”?
Every church and organization with a goal to thrive and grow stronger for the next generation must consider making their parish life and evangelization easy to access online, 24/7.
If you have completed Renew My Church at your parish, maybe now is a good time to rebrand your parish identity with a new custom logo, a new branding for all your digital and printed mediums (social media, business cards, envelopes, letterheads, etc.), or even a new modern website. As an example, we’ve included our latest rebranded parish, Saint Fabian Catholic Church in Bridgeview, IL, with a “before” and “after” preview.
