Launched in November 2008, ParishLight is a weekly newsletter emailed from the church’s Constant Contact account on Wednesday afternoons. Most subscribers are parishioners, but the list also includes former and prospective parishioners, staff members and others interested in news from St. Paul’s. The list has about 1,050 email addresses, and the open rate is typically 50-60%. More than half of subscribers open ParishLight on mobile devices.
The Communications Director is Editor of ParishLight.
Every issue of ParishLight contains notes for the upcoming Sunday services, adult formation class listings, child care details and Episcopal Youth Community meeting plans. Events and announcements follow in chronological order. A Transitions section is included if needed, followed by the public and military prayer lists and the Crisis Control Gift of the Month. A sidebar has a table of contents with links to articles, a link to the current issue of ParishLife and other reference information.
