Background – The 1990s was a tumultuous time in Northern Ireland. The Troubles have been going on for nearly 40 years and it just became a part of daily life. Riots, bombings, and car fires were seen on the daily news. You knew to stay in your neighborhood where it was safe. Despite all of this, teens are the same all around the world. So long as you have your clique, you can get through anything.
As you can remember, we left off our last blog discussing our online forms. They were our ticket item to create more of a buzz when it came to communicating with our parishes. No longer were we just a weekly offering site; we are now something more meaningful.
Can you believe it’s been a year and a half since we started this blog, and we have yet to write about how it all began? The question why was Parish Giving created is much more than a one word answer – it’s a story that should be shared with our followers and users. This is how it all started.
As we mentioned in last week’s blog, it’s never too early to plan for fall. Our teachers are gearing up for a new school year, and so should our parishes. We want to make sure that you are utilizing Parish Giving to benefit you the most! Keep reading to find out how!
Believe it or not, television commercials are dedicated to back to school! Teachers are gearing up for their classrooms with seasonal decorations, motivational pictures and plenty of ideas on how to make this school year better than the last. Are you doing the same thing with your Fall plans? Remember, it all starts now!

Happy First Day of Summer to all of our readers! It’s all about swimming pools, the beach and enjoying the warmer weather! We find that we have more time in our day to enjoy the little things like attending a ball game after work, or going to a splash park during the evening to watch the sunset. This week we’ll be dedicating our blog to those who know how to enjoy summer!
