Liturgical Publications Inc Helps Parishes Keep Up with Today's Catholics―in Print and Online

NEW BERLIN, WI (February 14, 2013) - In today's changing Catholic Church, not every member makes it to his or her own parish every week. And many members are now living in the digital age. How do parishes keep those members engaged and informed? They can find support from Liturgical Publications Inc (LPi), who has taken its experience in serving parishes into the digital age while still providing the important printed bulletin.

This is the message that LPi delivered recently when Joe Luedtke, President of LPi's e-Giving division, and Tim Potrikus, VP of Business Development for LPi, spoke with Scot Landry on the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston's radio program "The Good Catholic Life."

"When I started with LPi in 1992, we were helping parishes start to develop their own bulletins on a computer--something new and kind of scary to many of them. We were successful because we helped them navigate that new technology," Potrikus said. "Today we take that same level of expertise and help them engage their parishioners in today's digital age."

"LPi has long been one of the leading firms serving parishes in the US. In fact, they help over half of the parishes in my own archdiocese. Catholics today, like most Americans, are moving away from print and towards the Internet. In fact, the Archdiocese of Boston recently named LPi's online giving product, WeShare, as an approved prodcut for parishes in the Archdiocese," said Landry, Secretary for Catholic Media for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, and host of "The Good Catholic Life."
While the bulletin is still an important information tool for parishes, websites, social media, and online giving are necessary to reach today's parishioners. LPi not only appeared on Boston's radio but also speaks at conferences around the country, holds regional seminars, and has numerous webinars each month to help parishes stay up-to-date on the latest technology available to reach parishioners. LPi has taken its experience in helping parishes navigate new technology and expanded its offerings to the Internet.

"Parishes have to be concerned about security and privacy when offering information about their members online, or when accepting donations online," Luedtke said. "LPi is aware of that. That's why we offer WeGather as an alternative to public social media and why our online giving tool, WeShare, has the highest level of industry security available via full PCI Compliance and SSAE-16 auditing."
