For Email Marketing you can trust
 

 The Development Office purchases

 a diocesan-wide registration each month that allows any parish staff or volunteers to attend webinars offered by Our Sunday Visitor at no cost.  There is no limit on the number of attendees from our diocese or your parish. 

The one-hour sessions are offered at two times on the

second Tuesday of each month, except during the summer months of June, July, and August when they are

only offered at one time. 

 

 

The Development Office of the Diocese of Boise has purchased these webinars and receives a recording afterwards to make available to its schools and parishes for individuals and groups to download and view.  The links are active for one year.  Each one is approximately 60-minutes.  Please contact Margaret at MHampton@RCDB.org for the password to access these recordings.

Bringing New Excitement to Parish Ministry

Presenter:  Sue Erschen

 

Description: 

Sue is a freelance stewardship writer and consultant.  Her stewardship articles have appeared in Our Sunday Visitor Newsweekly, Today’s Catholic Teacher, Priest Magazine and St. Anthony Messenger.  Throughout her career she has written numerous stewardship training manuals, newsletters and brochures, including the Understanding Stewardship pamphlet which is currently available from Our Sunday Visitor. Sue has conducted stewardship training workshops for the International Catholic Stewardship Conference; regional stewardship conferences; the Archdiocese of St. Louis; the dioceses of Colorado Springs, Rochester, NY, and Springfield/Cape Girardeau; the National Association of Church Personnel Administrators and the Our Sunday Visitor Stewardship Webinar Series.  From 1999 until 2012 Sue served as the Director of Stewardship Education for the Archdiocese of St. Louis, responsible for providing stewardship and development training and resources to the 200 urban, suburban and rural parishes in the City of St. Louis and the 10 surrounding counties that make up that Archdiocese. Her background also includes over 20 years of experience in Catholic high school development, non-profit public relations, volunteer relations and business communications.  Sue’s stewardship work began in 1992 when she was asked to chair the first stewardship committee in her own parish. Sue holds a degree in business communications from Saint Louis University.  She and her husband, Rick, have four grown children, and two grandchildren.  They have lived and served in Seven Holy Founders parish for over 30 years. 


 Gather your entire committee or staff around one computer or project the webinar onto a screen for easier viewing by all attendees.
