St. Margaret Parish

We began working with St. Margaret’s Parish in December of 2020, and continue to work with them today. In this time, we’ve supported their interest in finding better ways to implement their communication goals by guiding them to outlets such as regular email campaigns and social media (Facebook, Instagram, & YouTube), all while keeping in mind their parish’s main goals of communicating with parishioners and keeping them engaged as we began a “post-covid” return from virtual to the pews and in-person events.

The Challenge

St. Margaret’s Parish was facing the same challenge as many churches in the modern era: how do we best communicate our parish culture to our parishioners and the public community around us without sacrificing the values that make us unique as a church? They felt misunderstood by previous marketing companies they had worked with in the past, who spoke of the church like a business instead of recognizing the special role churches play in a community. The St Margaret team wanted a partner who would help them to utilize digital communication forms such as email campaigns, Facebook, and YouTube to better engage their current parishioners and evangelize to the local community.

The Solution

Kindling Strategic provided St Margaret with the space to address what issues they had with their current communication systems, helped them to streamline their forms of evangelization, and explored with them new projects that would further their communication goals. With our tools and support, St. Margaret’s Parish was able to better communicate with their parishioners at every level and build a robust online community through Facebook and Instagram, all while maintaining their Catholic values. They went from a frustrated team working on their own to a team supported and energized to find new solutions.

What they Say

“St. Margaret Parish has been working with Kindling Strategic since December of 2020.  Chrissy and her company have been a true asset to us here at St. Margaret.  Her knowledge of website design has totally enhanced our St. Margaret website 100 percent!  Her thoughts, suggestions of new design programs we can use, and allowing us to work very closely with her to meet our specific parish needs has been wonderful and such a blessing.  The fact that she knows how the Catholic church works is so extremely helpful when explaining what it is we need because she already knows and realizes the importance of something being done a certain way. 

Kindling Strategic is the best decision that we have made to keep St. Margaret up with the demands of the world today and keeping our parishioners and the community  aware of what goes on in our parish.  Our hats off to Chrissy Kelleher for making her company the best for any parish!”
