2017 Annual Report

This ministry includes the following functions:

• Documentation of all major parish events
• Creation and maintenance of the parish website - www.TrinityCollinsville.org
• Assist with the creation of print ads
• Provide technology help desk functions for the parish staff
• Assist others in the parish with photography, media or technology needs

Trinity’s website is divided into five sections: Home Page, About Us, Media (Publications, and Photo Gallery), Calendars, and Ministries. The photo gallery contains pictures of all major parish events. It is not always possible to be at every event and so we rely on parish members who have cameras to help us document the life of the parish by submitting their pictures of any event for inclusion in the parish photo gallery on-line.

Each parish publication is posted online to coincide with the delivery of these publications in printed form. Each week’s sermon is also available in pdf format for download.

We are also responsible for the parish-wide e-mail service that sends out timely announcements to all those in the parish who have an e-mail address. If anyone in the parish isn’t receiving these messages, please get your e-mail address to Mary in the office.

As one of the last segments of the Nurture Trinity capital campaign, we installed new computers in the office and began installing a new cloud system called Realm which will replace our accounting system as well as provide the parish with a new way to communicate and share. Official full launch of Realm will occur in late January and early February.

This year we designed and arranged for publication of display advertisements announcing our holiday services for Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas in local newspapers.

This coming year we will be converting cassette tapes of Kenny Woods’ events over to digital CDs so anyone in the parish who wants to have this piece of musical history can do so.

We would welcome additional assistance from anyone in the parish with skills in media and/or technology.

Respectfully submitted,
Rick Richardson, Chair
