Communications Committee

Our Commitment:
The Communications Committee establishes ongoing and effective communication channels and instruments to facilitate communications throughout the parish.  This includes communication from staff to parishioners, parishioners to staff, communications that come to the parish from the Archdiocese, and other related organizations.

What We Do:                    
The Communications Committee is a small, fast moving, solution-oriented group who work independently, but with a finger on the pulse of the group needs.  The Committee establishes channels and supports effective communication from staff and ministries to parishioners and from parishioners to staff and ministries.  This is done weekly through the bulletin, digital signage, and website.

Time & Training Required:
Typically 3 hours per month for meetings and 4-10 hours per month for projects.  Once the new communication instruments are established, fewer hours will be required to support communications.

Helpful Attributes:
Those with graphic, web design, database development, and audio/video experience who can write, edit, or proofread.

New Parish Logo!

The Communications Committee is proud to share our newly designed logo for the Parish.  This Committee felt it was the perfect time to transition from the 125th Parish Anniversary logo to something that reflects our new pillar structure, still keeping the iconic cross tower as part of the design.

This logo was shared with Fr. Ray and the staff resource leaders and we will slowly start incorporating this logo into various communications and our website.  The committee is currently working on having these electronically available for use, as well as developing stationary, business cards, etc.

A special thank you to Mariana Hernandez who developed the design and Heather Cain for explaining the below symbolism behind it.

 

The Circle—a never-ending ring, represents the eternal life we have through Christ and how God’s love encircles us as we strive as individuals and as a Parish to be more Christ-like in our words, actions, and thoughts.

At the heart of the logo is the iconic Parish Cross Tower—it represents the people of the Parish, as together, we are the Church.  The gold layers behind the cross tower image symbolize our Parish Pillars:  Worship, Formation, Outreach, Stewardship & Community Life, Administration, and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.  These pillars form the foundation for all that our Parish is.

The Shell—a traditional symbol of baptism, is a tribute to our Parish patron saint, St. John the Baptist.  The shell’s placement in the logo signifies how the sacrament of baptism is the light, like the sun, that guides our hearts to God and nourishes our souls.

The Water—signifies life.  The life of the Parish as it flows through the community.  The life of each Parishioner, whose faith and energy flow though the Church; sharing our gifts and talents as stewards of God’s love, creating our vibrant and thriving Parish.
