Helping Parishes Succeed

Welcome all Pastors, parish staff, volunteers, and parishioners! The Archdiocese of San Antonio would like to offer this blog for you to use as a resource to further your ministry. Below you will find tips, ideas, and resources for helping with your engagement with your community. You will also find examples of parishes within the Archdiocese that are doing a great job in one of the below fields, which may give you an idea or two for your own parish. If you know of a parish that deserves recognition below, or if you have any questions please contact the Development Department at 210-734-1641 or email [email protected].
Thank you and God bless!
