A parish messaging service is available on WhatsApp.
People can receive messages via WhatsApp from the parish without having to share their number in a WhatsApp group.
WhatsApp call it ‘Broadcasting’.
With some parishioners not using Facebook it is a useful way of communicating Parish community information to many people quickly who may not have access to Facebook.
It also facilitates pastoral and services information signposting messages with the aim of helping people remember that they belong to a community and also hopefully reduce feelings of isolation for any parishioner who is ill, housebound, living alone or perhaps struggling with their mental health.
If you would like to avail of these services you can text ‘Parish Messages’ to 07989323409.
You will also need to save this number in your phone’s contact list for the messages to ‘authorise’ and arrive successfully on your phone.
Please share this information with anyone you know who might avail of this service.
