Our parish wants to be present in your family and in the palm of every parishioner through the web, e-mails, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.We need an EXPERT VOLUNTEER to set up the whole system: a new web page to be updated weekly, a messaging system with texts and e-mails, Facebook, Tweeter and Instagram pages.At the same time we need a DATA BASE system, which will give us the opportunity of reaching out to the many different groups of the parish. We would also like to have an electronic giving system and a possibility of assisting to our liturgies for the home-bound.If you have the knowledge and the expertise (and the time), please contact Fr.
