Display an Announcement to Members

Admins can write a message that displays at the top of the Dashboard when members log in. It can include links, numbered lists, and bulleted lists. There are also different font options to make parts of your announcement stand out.

You can use this announcement any way you want. It can be parish news, a message from the pastor, a call for volunteers for an upcoming event, or any other message that you want to communicate to parishioners and personnel. Change it as frequently as needed.

CAUTION: Members have the option to turn off this message in their preferences, so be aware that some may not see this.
