We're here when you need us
Whether you're facing a budget gap due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you are understaffed due to turnover or retirements, or you are seeking a cost-effective solution to enable you to continue publishing and communicating, we have the strategy to meet your need. Our experience, expertise, and unique ability to respond quickly to any situation make FAITH Catholic the solution you need now. Here are some of the ways we can help:
Staffing solutions to get the job done
FAITH Catholic can fill these important roles:
FAITH Catholic’s communications consultants have years of experience serving as directors of communications for dioceses and Catholic organizations. A FAITH consultant can help you develop a communications plan, manage communications in a crisis, take on special projects, provide training, develop an assessment of your needs, and more. Our consultant can augment your current communications team or step in for a limited time, if there is a vacancy.
Publication Managing Editor
A FAITH Catholic managing editor can oversee some or all of your publication process. This service can include planning issues, assigning writers, editing, writing, proofreading, obtaining photography, developing and implementing a production schedule, gathering content, working with graphic designers, and managing the approval process until the publication goes to press. A FAITH managing editor can be contracted for short- or long-term services, depending on your specific needs.
FAITH Catholic editors are brainstormers and problem solvers. If a story falls through for your diocesan editor, our editors can provide content at the last minute. In addition to personal service from our editorial director, FAITH can provide meticulous proofreading service, including copy-editing, and if there are theological questions, our staff theologian is available to provide guidance. We also offer translation services to help you publish in multiple languages.
With 11 full-time graphic designers, including two bilingual designers, you can tap into one of the most award-winning, faith-filled and creative resources available to Catholic publishers. Your FAITH designer can help with a single project or regularly as needed, or your organization may wish to have an ongoing relationship with a designer. No matter the arrangement, you’ll work with a graphic design pro who is part of a Catholic ministry with one purpose — to connect people with Jesus and his Church.
Through our partnerships with dioceses across the nation, we know the common themes and best practices to restore confidence in the Church during a time of crisis. Our seasoned team of consultants has a proven track record in helping bishops to assess, plan for, and develop strong messages of transparency, clarity, hope and healing. Our goal is to serve the Church and the people of God during challenging times.
The professionals at FAITH Catholic offer a unique combination of skills and experience working with Catholic institutions to help you bring your message to your target audience. Services include research and strategic analysis, custom marketing plans, project management, execution and follow-up, and measuring results. FAITH’s marketing team is available for large and small projects or to build ongoing marketing campaigns to reach long-term goals.
Social Media Coordination
Dioceses and Catholic organizations work hard to engage with followers in the social media space, but it's difficult to create a consistent presence in social media that engages people and helps them take the next step — clicking through to see your content. FAITH's digital editors can create a monthly social calendar with customized posts to drive traffic to your content site and help grow your digital audience.
In the past, readers received a link to a "flip book" edition of a publication that approximated the experience of flipping through a print publication. Today, readers expect to find magazine content on a website, where every story is searchable by publication date, author, subject matter and theme. FAITH's web and digital team is helping publishers to bring their content to an online platform that gives readers access to current stories, as well as archived material from past issues. A content website from FAITH Catholic, including social media support and a monthly e-news, is the future of digital publishing — creating an ongoing, evergreen resource that helps build disciples for Jesus and his Church!
FAITH Catholic can act as your webmaster and provide full-service website support, helping you maintain a strong and relevant web presence. Services include:
